Request a Grant Writer

Grant ranging from $5,000 to $45,000 to a USA or international organization to make a global impact on education for democracy by conducting a project on identifying, collecting, organizing and publicizing democracy education materials. Initial applications must be submitted by December 15 for consideration.

The project will encompass the collection and organization of educational materials on democratization, civil society, and civics into a free online format useful to students, educators, civil society, and others in emerging democracies worldwide.

These materials will then be made publicly available, including through but not limited to the Community of Democracies’ website. Materials should address topics such as elections and separation of powers, and could consist of a variety of informative, engaging materials (e.g. websites, videos, worksheets, transcripts, slideshows, etc.) that contribute to the audience’s understanding of the topic.

Through this announcement, the funding source seeks to support democratic consolidation at the grassroots level by providing a means by which educators and students in emerging democracies can easily access quality information on the roles of individuals and groups in the functioning of a democratic society. The materials should be broadly relevant to a wide audience of emerging States.
