Unsure if you should go for a regular leapfrog or a sustainability-focused one? Here's the deal for the sustainability grant, we're looking for projects that really embed sustainability at their core. Think back to why you started your project. Was tackling a sustainability goal the main driver, or is sustainability just a part of what you're doing?

Program Structure

  • Throughout the program, workshops will be conducted to equip you with essential skills for your project.
  • These sessions also serve as a platform for networking and collaboration with fellow participants.

Application Guidelines for Teams

  • If applying as a team, each member should submit an individual application.
  • Applications must be distinct; identical submissions are not accepted. However, the NABC section can be identical.
