The World Justice Project’s Opportunity Fund Competition

The World Justice Project’s seed-grant program called the Roderick B. Mathews Opportunity Fund provides funding to support innovative efforts to strengthen the rule of law.
Named after one of the founding board members of the World Justice Project, the Opportunity Fund seeks to inject entrepreneurial creativity into rule of law reform efforts. It provides  seed grants for selected innovators to test and implement practical solutions on the ground, acting as a justice laboratory.

This online competition, building on the success of previous rounds of the Opportunity Fund, will encourage innovations and engagement across a broad spectrum of stakeholders to advance the rule of law.

All individuals, organizations, and entities are eligible to enter the competition and may submit multiple entries. All entrants will be judged according to established criteria (see below) by a panel of distinguished judges. In addition to funding, Opportunity Fund winners will receive publicity, research, and networking support from the WJP. Winners will also have the opportunity to present progress on their projects at the 2013 World Justice Forum, a global gathering to examine the foundational importance of the rule of law and to promote collaborative actions to strengthen the rule of law.
The deadline to submit applications is 30 November 2012.
