AMP’s Tomorrow Fund grant - judging underway!

Many amazing Australians have applied for a share in $1 million offered by AMP's Tomorrow Fund. 

Thousands of passionate Australians—from scientists and social innovators to artists and athletes—have applied for a share in the $1 million offered by the 2015 AMP Tomorrow Fund.

Now in its second year, AMP’s annual grants program is open to people of all ages and all walks of life and interests. We’ve asked applicants to tell us what their goal is, what they’ve done to help make it happen and most importantly, how their idea can benefit Australians.

Who applied for a share in $1 million this year?

This year’s breadth and quality of applicants is extraordinary. People with ideas for environmental initiatives and those who are aspiring Paralympians, medical researchers, farmers, fashion designers and small businesspeople have submitted applications of a high standard.

More than 2,500 outstanding individuals have applied for part of the AMP Tomorrow Fund’s $1 million and judging the most worthy applications is proving to be a huge task.

Since applications closed in May the AMP Foundation, which runs the grants program, has undertaken a rigorous judging process involving more than 50 AMP employees and external experts.

Now for the final stage of judging…

This month the final stage of the judging process will take place. Our finalists will be assessed by four expert judges: AMP CEO Craig Meller, Wi-Fi pioneer Dr Terence Percival, video blogger Natalie Tran and The Funding Network’s CEO Lisa Cotton.

On Friday, 4 September the expert judges will convene in Sydney to determine how the $1 million in grants will be shared.

Stay tuned!

We expect to announce a first-rate line-up of AMP Tomorrow Makers at an awards dinner at Sydney Town Hall on Thursday, 19 November.
