Based on current events, funding in 2019 will be focussed on the following three themes:


  • Accessibility

Allowing people with impairments access to everything society has to offer.


  • Social Mobility

Providing people up to 30 years of age with inclusive and innovative education, thereby fostering self-sufficiency.


  • Migration/Integration

Offering migrants a chance to be part of inclusive communities and providing equal access to health care, education and social welfare.


We currently have a focus on projects in the following regions:


  • Europe
  • MENAT (Middle East, North Africa and Turkey)*


* Because of the overwhelming need within the Migration/Integration focus area in Mediterranean countries, we would like to give priority to projects in these areas. Applications from other countries within our geographic focus are still eligible.


We do not consider applications from individuals or for projects in the fields of culture, art, nature and sports.


We only accept applications submitted through our online forms. 
All forms must be submitted in English language.


All applicants for new projects are required to use the First-Step application form -- the link to which can be found at the bottom of this page during the application period.


The First-Step application form is often evaluated immediately upon submission, and shortly afterwards applicants can expect a reply with either an invitation to fill the Second-Step application form, or a decision to decline the project for funding. 


Applicants with projects which were accepted for funding in 2018 wishing to re-apply for funding and continue their project in 2019, are asked to get in touch with us via email before January, 2019. Applicants may then be invited to fill our online Running Project application.


The application period for funding in 2019 will start on October 29th, 2018.   


Important dates for applicants looking to apply for funding in 2019:


October 29th, 2018 -- Application period starts

December 14th, 2018 -- Deadline for First-Step applications

January 18th, 2019 -- Application period ends

Please note: the "apply" button, which is a link to the online application form for First-Step applications, will be in this field during the application period.


For emergencies, we occasionally accept applications from outside of our normal application period.   In this case, please send us a short description via our contact form.

For administrative reasons, we can only consider emergency project applications during the 7 months PRIOR to our application period!

Such projects should of course also meet our requirements listed above. During our application period, emergency project applications must apply as described in the section "Procedure for new projects".
