For Belarus

The goal of the programme is to support initiatives that seek to build an open society and increase public participation in Belarus.

We award grants for activities which intend to:
  • encourage civic activity including through:
- fostering civic engagement at local and national level;
- shaping civic attitudes of youth through educational activities;
- offering support for the development of the third sector;
  • counter discrimination and build attitudes of tolerance;
  • broaden access to independent information, develop new media that encourage civic participation.

We also support other initiatives whose aims coincide with those of the program.

Rules for grant applications:
  • Who can receive a grant?
Grants are primarily intended for Belarusian civic organisations.
  • What are the grant period and amount, and what expenses may be covered from the grant?
As a rule, grants are awarded for up to 12 months, with an upper limit of 15 000 EUR. In certain justified cases, the grant amount may be higher. Grants may be used to cover all expenses necessary for the implementation of the planned activity.
  • How should a grant application be submitted?
