Proposals should outline at least two educational events or activities designed to achieve the goals of the proposed program. This can be translation of the book, events (book launch, reception, discussion forum), seminars, courses, press conferences, or any creative form of educational outreach.

Proposals should include a draft budget of how the money would be spent.

 

Grant proposals are due in English by October 15, 2008. Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to Ms. Yiqiao Xu at yiqiao.xu@atlasusa.org

For this initiative, Atlas is collaborating with the Ayn Rand Institute (ARI) to provide Atlas institutes with advice and resources.  ARI Executive Director, Dr. Yaron Brook, participated in the programs of several of Atlas’s 2007 Rand recipients, including Imani (Ghana) and CIPA (China).

 

The other previous recipients were Bulgaria Society for Individual Liberty, Scientific
