Accepting applications until Nov. 15, 2019
The University of Utah, in partnership with Schmidt Futures, a philanthropic initiative founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, is sponsoring the American Dream Ideas Challenge. The challenge calls for innovative policy ideas or investable concepts that have the potential to increase net income for 10,000 middle-class households in Utah by 10 percent by 2022.
This statewide innovation challenge aims to create a healthier and more robust middle class that reduces income disparity and ensures upward economic mobility.
Proposals from individuals, organizations and entities serving communities throughout Utah are encouraged. The initiative seeks to engage a broad range of perspectives and encourage ideas from community members, governments, nonprofits, business and thought leaders, as well as faculty, staff and students from universities and colleges across the state.
