Ernst & Young Social Entrepreneur of the Year

(Community Matters) Every year in Austin Ernst & Young recognizes a Social Entrepreneur of the Year. The Silverton Foundation underwrites a $100,000 award. The award recognizes that qualities of entrepreneurship such as vision, leadership, passion, and commitment are as valuable to “social” enterprises as to business enterprises.

Fields in which the social entrepreneurs are eligible include the fields of health, education, social services and economic development, not other charitable endeavors including the arts and humanities. Applications due 3/31, however, a st extension is possible. More information here
