Any Small Grant with a budget of €500 or less will automatically be reviewed as a Micro-grant. To limit the administrative overhead added by numerous smaller grants, the following special conditions apply to Micro-grants.
Micro-grant budgets must not exceed €500.
Restrictions on disbursement methods
Micro-grants can only be disbursed using one of the following methods:
- institutional invoice for reimbursement
- payment by wire transfer, check, or credit card refund (Visa/MC/AmEx)
- individual/institutional reimbursement based on original receipts
- payment only by credit card refund (Visa/MC/AmEx)
Micro-grants are reviewed and approved by the Consortium Director. In cases where the Director recommends declining an application, the Director will bring the application to the review committee for confirmation.
