The Carnegie Challenge is a fund to enable partners to put on a high calibre debate to raise the profile and impact of a conference or event which they are organising. These debates should attract leading public policy thinkers and commentators to debate issues of public concern in.
The Carnegie Challenge is an award of £3,000. The award should be used to cover the expenses of panel members. The award should enable event organisers to attract leading professionals to speak at their event. It is hoped that this fund will allow organisers to attract national and international speakers to take part in a high calibre debate.
Partners should be not-for-profit civil society organisations, with a commitment to improving the wellbeing of people in the UK and Ireland in a way which fits with the strategic direction of the Trust.
The application process for 2013 is open now.
There is one remaining deadline for applications relating to events in 2013. This is Friday 21 June 2013 at 5pm.
