The support offered by the Fund is flexible according to the needs of individual proposals but the kinds of activity that may be funded include:

  • Expenses related to convening collaborators, holding workshops and creating bid materials.

  • Short-term support for bid facilitation, consultancy fees, project management or administration.

  • Website creation or development.

Requests may be submitted at any time and a response will normally be given within two weeks. Further information and an application form are available at:
