KCP 2023 Application Form
Welcome to the Keeling Curve Prize 2023 application. Before proceeding to the application please review eligibility requirements below:

    The Keeling Curve Prize Eligibility Requirements are copied below for your convenience, but you can access them anytime on our website here: https://www.globalwarmingmitigationproject.org/eligibility-requirements

    Applications that are incomplete or that do not meet these requirements will not be considered.

    We welcome entries for active projects or programs from anywhere in the world.

    The Keeling Curve Prize is awarded for current programs and projects only.

    Applications centered on past work, unimplemented ideas or untested hypotheses will not be accepted.

    Applications for the Keeling Curve Prize must be submitted in English. To ensure the legitimacy and accuracy of your responses, GWMP can not take responsibility for their translation. You can learn more about this by reading our FAQs at https://www.globalwarmingmitigationproject.org/faq

    Your project may align with more than one prize category. The application form requires that you designate a primary category for your application, but also allows you to list secondary categories for consideration. However, applicants are only eligible to win in one category in any given year.

    Applicants that have not received an award are welcome to apply in subsequent years.

    Previous prize winners may submit applications for new projects that are different from their previously awarded project and that utilize different methods and approaches to reduce or increase uptake of greenhouse gas emissions.

    Applications that do not attempt to quantify their emissions reductions or address the project’s functional and financial scalability (Questions #8 through #10) will not be considered. For more guidance see our FAQs at https://www.globalwarmingmitigationproject.org/faq

    The prize application period opens on November 1, 2022 and closes at 11:59 PM MST (Mountain Standard Time), February 10, 2023. To be considered, your application must be completed and submitted before this time, and before the cap of 500 applications is reached. For this reason, we encourage submitting your application as early as possible.

    By completing an application, you are granting the Global Warming Mitigation Project permission to disseminate information about your project at its discretion. Requests for confidentiality can be designated within the application.



  • Note: please skip this question if not applicable (i.e., your project is new or at an early enough stage that historical impacts are not relevant).
  • Note: if necessary, you can upload additional supporting materials, such as references or spreadsheets, at the end of the application (Question #20).
