2012 Social Innovation Grant to Build your own Interactive Website

A six-week live online Drupal course and one-on-one strategic planning free for an innovative web project that has a positive social impact.

I won last year and it was an amazing opportunity to learn Drupal from the ground up without any previous knowledge . . . Sam does a wonderful job of connecting with students and navigating through the content of the course. -- Desiree Koser, Fearless Future

At New Media Solutions our specialty is working with social entrepreneurs and innovative nonprofits. We think Drupal is an amazing and powerful tool for innovative projects that make the world a better place.  We are offering these grants to encourage its use.

We are giving out two Grants worth $600 each to an individual who has an innovative idea for a website that will have a positive social impact.  If you have such an idea you are eligible to apply.   (Projects can be for-profit, nonprofit, sponsored by an organization or independent.)

This is a great opportunity for a social entrepreneur who wants to build their own website or prototype.

The grant entitles you to free tuition in a 6 week course on building an interactive website with Drupal ($350 value) and a one on one (by phone) strategic planning session with an expert ($250). 

No programming skills are required. You can build your own site over the length of the course.
