MiniGrants: We Have Winners!

Quite a few of them, actually. Later on, we’ll trumpet the names of the winners (or their monikers at least) in the pages of this blog, but for now we’re e-mailing the applicants personal e-mails to let them know of the final decision.

Again, the quality of applications was beyond outstanding. The committee had its toughest time deciding how best to split the (quite limited) funds to ensure that the most qualified applicants receive a grant, and the most qualified applicants receive substantial amounts equal to the depth and breadth of their proposal. As we should have anticipated, there were a couple of applicants who didn’t make the last and final cut, but should have. We hated to cut them. It was a painful decision.

To everyone who applied: thank you. We are humbled and gratified at the tremendous response.
