The Emma Goldman Awards will be awarded yearly to between 5 and 10 selected excellent candidates. The nominees can spend the awards according to their own research plans, provided they fall within the remit of the aims of the Foundation and they are agreed upon by the Board of the Foundation. Candidates receive individual and group coaching to ensure that they plan their award’s budgeting carefully, so that the awards are most effective. Each awardee will receive 50,000 Euro to spend within two years and are required to provide a report of their activities at the end of this period. This report needs to be vetted by the Board.
