EMHRF Standard Grant Program: Supporting Human Rights Organizations

Deadline: 9 July 2018

The Euro-Mediterranean Foundation is currently accepting applications for its Standard grants program.

The Foundation aims at providing flexible financial assistance to regional, national and local human rights NGOs and institutes as well as individuals who promote, support, protect and monitor the observance of human rights in the South-Mediterranean region.

Grants are allocated to human rights defenders in difficulty or at risk, for the specific purpose of allowing them to protect their safety and pursue their activities, as well as to small human rights organisations or groups with the aim of strengthening their operational capacities to implement innovative activities in the region.

Funding Information

  • The amount of funding requested may not exceed EUR 40,000. It usually falls between EUR 5,000 and EUR 30,000.
  • The maximum duration of support is 12-18 months.
  • The request is such that it cannot be supported under the same conditions by another national, regional or international organisation.
  • The Foundation reserves the right to ask for any other explanation/documentation to the candidates if needed and to decide on whether it will provide full or partial support.

Eligibility Criteria

The EMHRF has a limited geographical mandate, and can only support human rights defenders/activities in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Palestine and Israel. However, human rights organisations and defenders based outside these countries may be supported by the Foundation if their action has a positive impact on one or several of those countries.
