You choose which Idea Lab proposals get funded

Students, faculty, and staff have submitted more than 80 ideas to the Idea Lab crowdsourcing website! Now the Johns Hopkins community is invited to vote for the ones they want to see in action.

The Ten by Twenty Challenge, established by President Ronald J. Daniels, is providing funding this year for tools and programs that will enhance the Baltimore community by assisting its citizens returning from incarceration. The annual Diversity Innovation Grants are supporting innovative programming ideas that foster diversity and inclusion, and the new Hopkins Eco-Smart Acorn Grants are helping the university become more sustainable.

Each challenge offers financial awards for the top vote getters as well as funding for additional projects selected by a committee. Participants can sign on with their JHED ID to comment and vote from today through April 28. Additional parameters specific to each of the challenges are outlined on the website.
