Today we announced the highest-scoring proposals in our 100&Change competition. The Top 100 are in the running for a single $100 million MacArthur grant to help solve one of the world’s most critical social challenges.

These proposals were rigorously vetted, and evaluated using four criteria: impactful, evidence-based, feasible, and durable. MacArthur’s Board of Directors will select up to 10 finalists from these high-scoring proposals, and one of them will be awarded a $100 million grant by the end of the year.

Check out the timeline for the competition:
