Nancy Adler selected as evaluation panel judge for MacArthur Foundation 100&Change competition

Nancy E. Adler, PhD pictureNancy E. Adler, PhD, has been selected as one of the 32 evaluation panel judges for the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s 100&Change competition, an initiative which will award a $100 million grant to fund a single proposal designed to make measurable progress toward solving a significant problem in any field or area. Applicants must complete a substantive online application, detailing the problem, solution, and budget, along with a video pitch.

Along with her fellow evaluation panel members, Adler will help review and score valid submitted proposals to assist in the identification of up to ten semi-finalists. From this group, a smaller number of finalists will be selected to present their solutions at a live event in the fall of 2017. Selection of the final award recipient will rest with MacArthur's Board of Directors.
