All grants are made at the sole discretion of the Future2 Foundation. The shortlist is based on its evaluation of each application, judging criteria and the availability of funds. Future2 reserves the right not to award any specific grant for any reason, or for no apparent reason, no matter how deserving the proposed project may be or how closely the applicant has followed the guidelines and procedures.  Rejection of an application does not mean that it is not well regarded. Future2 cannot enter into correspondence with individual grant applicants about the relative merit of the application or the specific reasons for deciding not to award a grant.
