PROVIDENCE – The deadline for submitting an application for the Rhode Island Foundation’s 2014 Rhode Island Innovation Fellowships, an annual program intended to stimulate solutions to the state’s challenges, is Friday, Dec. 13.

The program, now in its third year, will award two applicants up to $300,000 over three years to develop, test and implement innovative ideas that have the potential to dramatically improve any area of life in Rhode Island.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity for those with bold ideas. Thanks to the foresight of Letitia and John Carter, big thinkers now have the chance to convert their concepts to action,” said Neil D. Steinberg, the Foundation’s president and CEO.

Steinberg will chair the selection committee. The other committee members are David M. Dooley, president of the University of Rhode Island; Ann-Marie Harrington, president of Embolden; Charlie Kroll, president and CEO of Andera Inc.; Marie Langlois, retired managing director of Washington Trust Investors; Lisa Utman Randall, executive director of the Jamestown Arts Center; and Don Stanford, chief innovation officer of GTECH.

Preference will be given to proposals that promise “the greatest good for the greatest number of Rhode Islanders.” Although applicants do not have to be residents of Rhode Island when they apply, they must commit to living in Rhode Island during the term of the fellowship if selected.

The 2014 recipients are expected to be announced in April. Soren Ryherd and Allan Tear received the inaugural grants in 2012. The 2013 fellows were Adrienne Gagnon and Dr. Lynn Taylor.
