Gov 2.0 Grant

The IOP Gov 2.0 grant provides a $5000 stipend to an individual or group of Harvard College returning undergraduates committed to dedicating the summer to an entrepreneurial venture relating to domestic politics or government. Funding will be awarded to the individual or team with the most innovative idea to reshape American civic life.

Applicants may propose anything from a student-run start-up to a new project that operates within the context of an established organization.

Harvard Freshman George Ko, shown at right during an IOP focus group describing his Gov 2.0 winning initiative “Politoscape,” launched the political news aggregator in the summer of 2012 as the presidential race intensified.
