Think Tank Startup Fund

Part of the Atlas Network strategy is to help new think tank leaders establish and grow new organizations committed to advancing liberty. We do this through a combination of grants, training, and networking opportunities. If your organization is just getting started or working to rejuvenate itself, we invite you to apply for support from our Think Tank Startup Fund. Strong candidates for funding will have enrolled in the Atlas Network Academy and completed the Think Tank Fundamentals and Think Tank Theory & Practice online courses.
