Summer 2024 TINT Grant Application

$25k for exceptional individuals at life inflection points

Apply with a single video. No paperwork required.

Our goal is to make this application process as streamlined and simple as possible, but to do that we need 100% transparency and authenticity from you.

There is no right or wrong way to answer the questions in your video. It is helpful to us if you are specific about your goals and plans if you were to receive a TINT grant. But most importantly, we are interested in your genuine truth, not production value. We won’t mislead you, so please don’t mislead us: the only automatic disqualifiers are if you lie to us or don’t tell us about important parts of your life.

Finalist candidates will have in-person interviews, including with a potential coach, and are subject to confirmatory background checks.

If you have applied previously, you can reapply after a 6 month period. Applications will not be accepted if submitted within 6 months of your last application.

Saying this again for everyone in the back! 

We want to see the genuine, authentic you. We do not expect *any* level of production or polish in your video. We specifically chose an application process reliant on video because we know that your authentic self will shine through. Turn on the camera, and say what you want to say. It won't be perfect, but it will be you, and that's what we care about.

By providing your cell phone number you agree to receive text messages about the TINT program and the status of your application via our texting platform.

Reminder: TINT Applicants must live in the metro-Boston area
