Magic Grant Information Session
February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Are you passionate about the role that emerging technologies can play in the future of media? Do you have a story that can only be told using technology outside the scope of traditional media? A Brown Institute Magic Grant might be for you.
Established in 2012 as a collaboration between Columbia University’s Journalism School and Stanford’s School of Engineering, Brown Institute Magic Grants seed innovation in the changing media landscape.
Magic Grants provide year-long funding awards of up to $150,000 ($300,000 for teams with members of both the Columbia and Stanford communities). In addition to funding, grantees have access to a distinguished advisory and mentoring group, an extensive and inspiring alumni network.
If you’re interested in learning more about our Magic Grant offerings, come to one of our upcoming information session where you can find out:
- The types of projects we’re interested in supporting
- The various types of support we offer to grantees & fellows
- Eligibility guidelines
- How our staff can help you develop your proposal
