The clicking funding has allowed the Foundation to award three rounds of funding to projects from poor areas of the world. Every time this funding has taken a different shape, starting with the Global Junior Challenge 2002’s coverage of the trip by leaders of winning projects to Santa Clara University to do a special course on Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The second time, on occasion of the GJC 2004 , the funding took the shape of the Small Fund Award, with €5,000 awarded to the winning projects along with support for their development plans. The GJC 2007 is the most recent , with the great news that the Cooperazione Italiana of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs pledged €425,000 to be awarded to 8 projects from poor areas of the world (Bangladesh, Ecuador, Uganda, Cameroon, Kenya, Nepal, South Africa, Uruguay). The projects from Bangladesh, Ecuador and Uganda will receive up to a maximum of €100,000 each, while those of Cameroon, Kenya, Nepal, South Africa, Uruguay will receive up to a maximum of €25,000 each. The fund is not an automatic prize. It will be released on condition of the presentation of satisfactory development plans by the projects.
