The PBS Foundation and the Skoll Foundation announced today the establishment of the PBS Foundation Social Entrepreneurship Fund, with a three-year, $2.5 million grant from the Skoll Foundation. The PBS Foundation will use the funds for filmmakers, documentarians and other journalists to produce work that promotes "large-scale public awareness of social entrepreneurship, and highlights individuals who are pioneering innovative approaches that address far-reaching social issues." Each project supported by the fund may include an outreach initiative, determined by the applicant. Guidelines for applying for a PBS Foundation Social Entrepreneurship Fund grant can be found on the PBS website.
