Responses have already been sent out to all the applicants.
How to apply in the next cycle
During the summer period (June – August), only applications for micro-grants will be reviewed. Micro-grants are reviewed on a rolling basis but, due to summer holidays, responses may be delayed. Applications for regular grants will re-open in the fall with a tentative deadline of 14 September.
The deadline will be confirmed in late summer or early fall and announced on AMICAL Connect. In the weeks before the deadline, we’ll be also holding an informal half-hour Q&A session to answer questions and listen to feedback.
Check the Small Grant guidelines for full information about how to apply, including the scope of the program and the criteria used in reviewing applications.
