APPLY TODAY FOR NATION OF MAKERS’ MAKER TOWN HALL MICROGRANTS!
A Maker Town Hall is an opportunity to convene key stakeholders in your community to discuss the role of the Maker Movement as it relates to areas such as education, entrepreneurship, workforce development, manufacturing, community revitalization and community-based problem solving. Getting different stakeholders together to talk about the Maker Movement can be a way to develop new collaborations, partnerships and initiatives that can help grow the ecosystem that is supporting the Maker community in your city.
Nation of Makers is offering micro-grants ranging from $500-$1,000 to a number of communities who plan to host Maker Town Halls. Applications for microgrants will be accepted until June 1, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Recipients of the microgrants will be announced during the National Week of Making, June 16-22, 2017.

Maker Town Hall Microgrants are generously supported by Cognizant, in partnership with the Maker City Project.
