Grabbed this from an email list I belong to:
Since 1987, Echoing Green has provided seed funding and support to nearly 500 social entrepreneurs – including the founders of Teach For America, City Year, College Summit, SKS Microfinance, and Genocide Intervention Network.
In Spring 2011 Echoing Green will award between 12 and 20 fellowships to early-stage social entrepreneurs. Fellows receive up to $90,000 in seed funding over two years, technical support, and access to a powerful global community of fellows and alumni.
The online application will open in October 2010. Right now, potential applicants should review the application questions and sign up for application updates from us. Complete details are available here.
Here's my blog post highlighting the 2010 Echoing Green Fellows.
