Johns Hopkins‘ accelerator for social entrepreneurs opened up applications on Monday to join its next group of ventures.

The Social Innovation Lab offers a six-month program with resources to help “driven, experienced and altruistic applicants” who are looking to create scalable and sustainable solutions to big problems, according to JHU. Resources include $1,000 in seed funding, as well as access to mentors, workshops and office space.

The cohort closes out with a spring competition where members select the winner of an additional $25,000 through a peer review process. Last year, transparent surgical mask startup ClearMask won the $25K prize. Mera Kitchen Collective, which provides immigrant and refugee chefs opportunity through food entrepreneurship, was also among the members. We also recently spotted alum Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap on NPR.

It’s open to the entire Baltimore community, as well as those from the university community. In 2017, half of the cohort teams were not directly affiliated with Hopkins, according to info from the university.
