Apply Here

Prometheus Foundation funds organizations and individuals who demonstrate that they can effectively promote Ayn Rand and advance Objectivism.

We seek to engage with people and organizations who uphold and live by rational principles, and who are willing to present Ayn Rand’s ideas to their audiences accurately.

Before applying, be sure that you read about and understand our three funding programs and the criteria for participating in them. (Please note: We do not fund translations, book-writing projects, or projects directly advocating political policy.)

Note: The inclusion of academese, vague language, or any kind of “fluff” will cause your proposal to be rejected. To give your proposal its best chance of success, please include only relevant information, use crystal-clear language, and omit all extraneous material.

When you’re familiar with what we fund and are ready to apply for funding, simply fill out the application below, being sure to include all requested information and materials.

Consider the following: Does your audience target a specific type of person or is it more general? What is the quality of your audience/market? Does your audience consist of students, intellectuals/scholars, middle-aged adults, professionals, political people, etc.?
For instance, if applicable, provide a list of required reading material (essays, talks, lectures, courses, etc.) and specify whether there will be assignments (homework, tests, quizzes, essay submissions, etc.).
For instance, consider and state whether your project might result in large numbers of people being taught or inspired to read Ayn Rand’s works or coming to understand Objectivism deeply.
Consider the following: Is this a one-off course/lecture/event, or a series? How many hours do you expect will be spent with each impacted individual? Will there be follow-up activities, such as courses of study, discussion groups, materials offered, or email lists to maintain contact with attendees?
When answering this, please consider the future prospects of your project, your organization, and others involved in the project.
Consider carefully such questions as: What is the estimated cost per audience member or student? What is the estimated cost per lecture or event? How many are being contacted, how frequently will they be contacted, and how much will it cost to contact them? How much will it cost to achieve your desired results?
