The CCG Bike Safety Fellowship
The Christina Clarke Genco Foundation has established the CCG Bike Safety Fellowship to support the efforts by individuals and nonprofit organizations to increase bike safety in their local communities. The Fellowship is a one-time award of up to $3,000 that may be used to finance an individual’s participation in an existing bike safety project, supplement his or her income from volunteer efforts, or involve the individual in any other traditional or non-traditional bike safety project. The Fellowship may also be awarded to a nonprofit organization to fund a part-time temporary position to complete a bike safety project on behalf of the organization. Municipal agencies are eligible as well.
Types of Projects Funded
Criteria for fellowship eligibility is intentionally broad; the selection committee is open to a wide range of projects so long as they are tied to bike safety or related issues. Applicants may range from high school students to professionals with advanced degrees. Some things that are taken into consideration when evaluating proposals include the short- and long-term impact of the project on both the applicant and communities served, as well as the overall effect of the fellowship’s funding on the successful completion of the project.
Contact us with any questions about the application process or any projects you may consider submitting for funding.
Prospective fellows must submit an application form describing the proposed project and the need for funding. Applications are considered at announced deadlines by the executive board of the CCG Foundation. Funding decisions will be made once a year in the spring.
Applications are now closed. Check back here in early 2014 for information about the 2014 application.
