How to apply in the next cycle
The deadline for the next round of applications is midnight on 10 September.
The Small Grant guidelines provide information about how to apply, including the scope of the program and the criteria used in reviewing applications.
To help folks better understand the program, and how to apply successfully, we’re holding an informal half-hour Q&A session on 13 September 2021, 15:00–15:30 (Paris time, local time). AMICAL administration will be on hand to answer questions and provide advice. If we end up with lots of participants (or questions), we’re happy to extend the session a bit longer.
