Grants Program at National Endowment for Democracy _ Deadline: 7-Oct-2011

Each year NED makes direct grants to hundreds of nongovernmental groups abroad working to ensure human rights, an independent media, the rule of law and to advance other democratic goals.

We encourage applications for financial support from activist organizations in diverse situations, such as transitional countries where the goal is democratic consolidation, authoritarian countries where the goals are liberalization, and the protection of human rights.

The next proposal deadline is October 7, 2011 for consideration at the January 13, 2012 Board Meeting.

Application Procedure

The next meeting of the NED Board of Directors for which NED is accepting proposals will be on January 13, 2012.

All grant applications must be submitted by October 7, 2011 to be considered for approval at the January Board Meeting.

The NED is no longer accepting proposals for the Board Meeting of September 9, 2011.

How are funding decisions made?
Funding decisions are made on a quarterly basis by the NED Board of Directors. In addition to evaluating how a program fits within the Endowment's overall priorities, the Board considers factors such as the urgency of a program, its relevance to specific needs and conditions in a particular country, and the democratic commitment and experience of the applicant.

What types of programs is the Endowment interested in?
The Endowment is especially interested in proposals that originate with local democratic groups. It is also interested in nonpartisan programs seeking to strengthen democratic values. Note that the Endowment does not make grants to individuals.

All proposed projects must be consistent with the Endowment's general purposes as briefly outlined in the first paragraph of About Us.

How can my organization apply for a grant from the Endowment?
To apply for a NED grant, submit a proposal cover sheet, proposal and budget to or to the appropriate regional Program contact person at the NED. The Endowment can only process incoming proposals if they are accompanied by a Proposal Cover Sheet.
