How it works
We publish “Calls for Proposals” on specific themes and invite our members to apply for grants through a competitive selection process. These themes are aligned with our strategy alongside the current challenges that our members are dealing with.
Because applying for grants can be time-consuming, we have a two-stage application process.
Stage 1 – the concept note
Applicants prepare a short concept note outlining the project idea. The template can be found in English, Spanish and Portuguese. These concept notes are evaluated by the Project Selection Committee.
Stage 2 – the full proposal
The Project Selection Committee will invite the most promising ideas to submit a full project proposal. The full proposal should address any concerns or issues raised by the Committee.
The full proposal includes a narrative proposal, a log frame, a workplan, and a proposed budget.
Once the successful projects have been selected, we may ask the applicant to make some final adjustments to their proposal and budget. The final negotiated proposal and budget will be used to form a grant agreement.
