TED Conferences, LLC: Inviting Applications for award of TED Prize to a leader at a tipping point in their career — one who has an innovative idea for catalyzing global change

Donor Name: TED Conferences, LLC
Fund name: TED prize 2018

Funding brief: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Each year, we award the TED Prize to a leader at a tipping point in their career — one who has an innovative idea for catalyzing global change.

TED Prize nominations are considered year-round on a rolling basis. All nominations are read by our team and researched in detail. We actively consider about 100 nominees, and approximately 15 advance to the finalist round.

For finalists, this is not your typical grant-writing process. We work with each candidate, pushing them to dream bigger. Many finalists — even those who don’t become TED Prize winners — say the process helped them grow and sent them in new directions they never could have imagined.

The TED Prize winner is selected from among the finalists by a panel of leading members of the TED community. The TED Prize team then works closely with the winner to help them create an execution plan for their wish and to present their idea in a compelling TED Talk at our annual conference.

Deadline: The Foundation is currently accepting nominations for the 2018 TED Prize — and want to hear from you! Please submit your application by July 31, 2017, to be considered.
