Free Money Friday - Amber Grant
Updated: Feb 21, 2020
To kick off our series, we want to start with a grant that has a simple application process and multiple application rounds. The Amber Grant for Women is sponsored by WomensNet and awards $4,000 every month to the most compelling applicant. Applications are fairly simple to complete as you only have to describe your business and explain your intended use for the money. Oh, and have your social media sites ready, because the Selection Committee will use them to learn more about what you do! Only women can apply for this grant and monthly winners are eligible to compete for an additional $25,000 at the end of the year. The deadline for this month's application round is February 29, 2020 and winners are typically announced early the following month. I say this is a no-brainer. If you qualify, apply.
