Education organizations take a LEAP to advance their evidence journey

10 organizations have been selected by MIT Solve and the Jacobs Foundation to address global learning challenges as the 2023 LEAP Project Host winners.

In May 2022, the Jacobs Foundation, launched LEAP (Leveraging Evidence for Action to Promote change), a global initiative that brings together researchers and social entrepreneurs to support education organizations to generate evidence and prove the effectiveness of their learning solutions. The initiative was developed in collaboration with MIT Solve.

In this year’s LEAP Challenge, the panel of expert judges selected 10 organizations from over 240 applications to become official 2023 LEAP Project Hosts. They will receive expertise from research and social entrepreneur fellows over the course of a 12-week project sprint, tailored strategies designed to strengthen their evidence base, and a $5,000 stipend.

Simon Sommer, Co-CEO of the Jacobs Foundation and member of the LEAP judging panel, said, “I am excited and proud about the selection of LEAP hosts this year. The diversity of the organizations is fantastic and we are convinced that the upcoming projects will help them to support more children with better-evidenced learning opportunities!”
