Since its launch in 2014, the #GIRLBOSS Foundation has awarded more than $120,000 in grants to women in the worlds of design, fashion, music, and the arts to help them on their way to becoming a #GIRLBOSS and owning their futures. By supporting aspiring women, the foundation aims to empower creative women to take over the world.

To that end, the foundation will award a single grant of $15,000 to a woman working in the worlds of design, fashion, music, or the arts to pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor. The grant recipient also will receive exposure through the #GIRLBOSS and Nasty Gal social channels as well as local and regional press.

THE GRANT

The GIRLBOSS® Foundation awards one grant biannually to female entrepreneurs pursuing creative endeavors. Each grant beneficiary will receive project funding of $15,000, in addition to exposure through the GIRLBOSS® digital channels.

Eligibility
Grants are exclusive to female creative business owners in the worlds of design, fashion, music, and the arts. To be eligible, applicants must identify as female, US residents, that are or will be 18 years or older by the close of the submission window. Unfortunately we are currently unable to accept international applications.

The Selection Process
Our selection committee is formed from a group of Girlboss Media staff and led by Sophia Amoruso. The committee reviews all applications submitted within the period and judges each project based on the following criteria:

Demonstrates creativity + innovation in the specific field (30%)
Demonstrates business acumen + forward planning (30%)
Demonstrates financial need (30%)
Proposed timing, work plan, and budget are clear, detailed, and achievable within the next 12 months (10%)
