Our Selection Process 

PropelNext uses a competitive, rigorous process to identify and assess candidates and select our grantees.

PropelNext grantees are successful youth-serving organizations already making a difference in the lives of disadvantaged youth. We search for potential grantees by reaching out to a broad network of funders, leading providers and practitioners, evaluators and other experts. We also conduct independent research and mine our own database.

PropelNext applications are accepted by invitation only. If you are interested in PropelNext and believe you meet the criteria laid about above, we invite you to join our mailing list to stay abreast of the initiative’s latest developments and possible future opportunities.
