Q: Who selects grant recipients?
A: Our founders, Elissa Mirsky and Michelle Morgan currently select the grant winners.
Q: Why do you charge an application fee?
A. The fee makes the grant and operation of the site possible.
Q: If I apply once and don’t receive a grant am I automatically enrolled for the next month?

Q: What criteria do you use to select a winner?
