    Choose one of the three options, then use the criteria to help you structure your argument:


    1)   MacArthur Fellows Program (“genius” grants) Criteria:

     “The MacArthur Fellows Program awards unrestricted fellowships to talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction. There are three criteria for selection of Fellows: exceptional creativity, promise for important future advances based on a track record of significant accomplishment, and potential for the fellowship to facilitate subsequent creative work. The MacArthur Fellows Program is intended to encourage people of outstanding talent to pursue their own creative, intellectual, and professional inclinations. In keeping with this purpose, the Foundation awards fellowships directly to individuals rather than through institutions. Recipients may be writers, scientists, artists, social scientists, humanists, teachers, entrepreneurs, or those in other fields, with or without institutional affiliations. They may use their fellowship to advance their expertise, engage in bold new work, or, if they wish, to change fields or alter the direction of their careers.


    2)   The Clinton Global Citizen Awards Criteria:

    “Established in 2007, the Clinton Global Citizen Awards™ embody President Bill Clinton's call to action by honoring outstanding individuals who exemplify global citizenship through their vision and leadership. These citizens have proven that diverse sectors of society can work together successfully to devise solutions that effect positive, lasting social change. Nominated by CGI members and other global leaders, honorees were chosen based on their innovative approaches, and on the demonstrated results and sustainability of their work. The awards are given to individuals who have shown ground-breaking leadership in four sectors: civil society, the corporate sector, philanthropy, and public service. Having proven their uncommon abilities to strengthen civil society, these visionaries inspire us all to take action and to become true global citizens.”
