APC member grants

Grants for research and campaign support – CALL open to all members

This is a rolling call and will be open till 30 September 2019This call is open to all APC members, with 5 grants available for those members who are located in countries outside the OECD Development Assistance Committee’s list.

These grants are for projects that contribute to research and campaign activities that are aligned with any of the strategies identified in APC’s Theory of Change. The grants will continue to support local campaigns that contribute to members’ advocacy work and also enable members to participate in APC-wide campaigns.

This year, we would also like to invite members to consider submitting proposals that are designed around research or advocacy on some themes that correspond with the work currently being undertaken by APC through its projects and programmatic work.

Suggested themes:

  1. Environmental sustainability (For e.g. impact of technology on the environment, land appropriation by corporates)

  2. Digital economy (for e.g. feminist digital economy, emerging technologies, labour rights, consumer rights)

  3. Freedom of religion or belief and hate speech

  4. Inclusive societies and political participation

  5. Private sector accountability

  6. Online gender-based violence

  7. Feminist Principles of the Internet (how they can be adapted, localised and made more relevant to your work)

Please note that members are free to submit proposals on any subject that is relevant to their work and aligned to APC’s Theory of Change, but we encourage you to consider the themes mentioned above towards facilitating meaningful collaboration in implementing our strategic priorities.
