MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Competition

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the HASTAC Initiative is accepting applications through October 15, 2007. The two awards:

Innovation Awards

$250,000.00 and $100,000.00

"Innovation Awards will go to pioneers who are exploring new digital models of learning that build upon and enhance the informal, networked, and collaborative styles today, especially but not only among youth. These projects will demonstrate new modes of learning in many environments."

Knowledge-Networking Awards

"Knowledge-Networking Awards will go to creative and dedicated communicators. Not every digital inventor/developer is a skillful knowledge-networker. How can good ideas be circulated widely, taking full advantage of the Web's potential for collaborative thinking, where many can contribute, shape, and share?"
