The LEAP Catalyst Grants provide seed funding for strategic initiatives that have been developed through the program.


LEAP projects often span the boundaries between disciplines and sectors, making it difficult to attract funding from traditional sources. For this reason, LEAP provides non-dilutive funding to catalyze the implementation of key projects and facilitate the procurement of additional resources. This program cycle, LEAP made four $10,000 awards to Fellows or groups of Fellows to support the implementation of their Strategic Action Plans.
