Welcome to the 2023-2024 WEF Grant Application!
Here you will find a link to the application and the two forms you will be required to upload. We recommend that you view the training video before submitting your application. A simple five-question quiz over the contents of the training video could add up to 20 bonus points to your application. After the application is submitted, it will be read by a minimum of two foundation members and scored using a rubric. The training video is less than 10 minutes and provides insight into what the grant readers are looking for.
