Magic Grant Cocktail Hour
March 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Join us Monday and Wednesday nights at 8pm for informal, virtual cocktail hours to talk about your ideas, mingle with peers, and ask general questions about granting opportunities at the Brown Institute. These sessions will take place at ohyay.co/s/cocktail-hour and will be hosted up until the Magic Grant deadline on April 8 at 8PM each night.
Our “Magic Grants” are a unique blend of technology and media. Grantees develop new ways to find and tell stories — producing platforms that extend our creativity, or creating powerful new works of journalism.
- A Magic Grant can mean financial support for you and your team for up to a year (fellowships at Columbia, research positions at Stanford)
- A Magic Grant can provide funding for your project — for production, prototyping, or purchasing services, software or equipment
- A Magic Grant offers access to mentorship and our extensive alumni network
The Magic Grant program provides year-long funding awards of up to $150,000 ($300,000 for teams with members of both the Columbia and Stanford communities and their collaborators). In addition to funding, grantees have access to a distinguished advisory and mentoring group, and an extensive and inspiring alumni network.
