Selection process

Applicant organizations will be selected through a 2-stage process.

Stage 1: Applicant organizations must complete a form summarizing the relevant information from the organization submitting the project along with a brief presentation of the project they seek to fund. Based on the information sent in the first application phase, a shortlist of projects will be made that meet the requirements and objectives of the call.

Stage 2: Shortlisted applicant organizations will need to submit a more detailed application. They may also be asked to give a (virtual) presentation on the project for which they require grant funds.
