Request a Grant Writer

Competition for USA, Canada, and International organizations and individuals for projects that address environmental issues. Winning submissions will receive a $25,000 prize. Eligible projects either eliminate, reduce, or increase the uptake of greenhouse gas emissions in the oceans and the atmosphere.

Winning projects may include advancing innovation or enhancing nature-based strategies, tools and techniques for improved systems, materials and design, as well as strategies and actions that lead to reversing emissions. These projects may be specialized or simple, high tech or low tech, engineered or adaptive, but ultimately they decarbonize people's lives. Applications are encouraged from projects that address an unresolved challenge, exhibit efficacy in decarbonization, provide important scalability or innovative development. Prizes are awarded for ongoing work only (not as a reward for unimplemented ideas or past work).

The Keeling Curve Prize for Excellence will be awarded to two projects in each of the following categories:

  • Capture and Utilization: Projects in this category activate and accelerate natural and/or man-made systems for carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS). They are advancing technological and nature-based strategies for capturing and/or utilizing heat-trapping gases from the air or oceans.
  • Energy: Projects in this category decarbonize energy, support zero-carbon energy innovations and are leading the way in the supply, distribution, access, infrastructure, or improvements of low or zero-emissions energy systems worldwide.
  • Finance: Projects that apply in this category are making the economics and/or financial mechanisms work for heat-trapping gas reduction and/or reversal ventures. 
  • Social and Cultural Pathways: Projects in this category are changing the way people consider, understand, and act on humanity’s impacts affecting the livability of planet Earth. They are trying to answer the question: what does it take, socially and culturally, to develop beyond fossil fuels?
  • Transport and Mobility:Projects that apply in this category should be re-imagining and reinventing all types of vehicles, fuels, and mobility options for both people and products. These projects will confront the carbon footprint of the vehicles themselves and the routes traveled.
