JBL Quantum Grant with 1,000 Dreams Fund

In 2021, 1,000 Dreams Fund has partnered with JBL to launch the JBL Quantum Grant with 1,000 Dreams Fund program to help amplify the voices and jumpstart the careers of women in esports.

Women are still underrepresented in gaming and esports, and together, we are on a mission to identify and support women interested in pursuing careers in esports by providing funding and access to hands-on experiences to help them pursue their passions through microgrants and unique opportunities to engage with high-profile women in the industry.

The 1,000 Dreams Fund x JBL Quantum Changemakers Challenge is now closed for 2021 - thank you for applying!

“Through our partnership with JBL, we are committed to helping a diverse group of young women get closer to achieving their career, including first-generation college students and young women of color,”

— Christie Garton, founder and CEO of 1,000 Dreams Fund.

In 2021 through our 1,000 Dreams Fund x JBL Quantum Changemakers Challenge, 30 women will receive the ultimate prize package to fuel their gaming dreams:

  • $1,500 grant
  • A JBL Quantum gaming headset for the ultimate competitive advantage
  • Winners will receive a virtual mentorship session with JBL Ambassadors BrookeAB, Ninjayla and Ava.GG, with remarks from JBL Ambassador, WNBA superstar and broadcaster Candace Parker

Our JBL Quantum Grant is just another way we’re celebrating our ongoing commitment to funding and spotlighting the talented young women with big dreams in gaming and esports. We want to help them achieve their goals and win big — now and in the future.
