Application Deadline: September 30, 2015 at 2:00 pm, Pacific Daylight Time.

An open invitation to aim our collective might at creating real, impactful change.

Google.org is looking for your biggest and best ideas for how technology can expand opportunity and independence for people with disabilities. Google is committing USD 20 million in grant funding toward this goal, some of which may be awarded to organizations identified through this call for ideas.

  • Exciting ideas are already becoming a reality. For instance, 3D-printed prosthetic limbs, eye-controlled communication software, and remote hearing diagnostics are part of a wave of current innovations that have the potential to change the trajectory of solutions available to people with disabilities.

Google hopes that the Google Impact Challenge will propel even more technological innovation that will create meaningful and positive change for people with disabilities.
