The project HOPES-LEB (Higher and Further Education Opportunities and Perspectives for Syrians and vulnerable youth in Lebanon), funded by the European Union through the EU Regional Trust Fund in response to the Syrian Crisis, the ‘EU Madad Fund’, and implemented by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Campus France and Nuffic, is pleased to announce the opening of the second round of the HOPES-LEB Call for Proposals to support short-term training and capacity building projects implemented by local institutions and organisations registered in Lebanon.
- Through the Funding for Training and Capacity Building, a total of € 1,080,000 is available to support projects in Lebanon, which allows for at least 18 projects in total.
- The second round of the Call for Proposals aims to support at least nine additional projects ranging from € 10,000 to € 60,000.
- The maximum duration of these funded projects should not exceed 14 months.
- Direct beneficiaries: individuals that are the first-hand targets of the interventions and activities of a project;
- Indirect beneficiaries: individuals which have no direct link with the activities but could potentially benefit from them via the direct beneficiaries and the sustainability of projects’ results, mainly achieved through capacity building measures.
- The general criteria that proposals under the Funding for Training and Capacity Building have to comply with in order to be eligible:
- Proposals should come from organizations and institutions officially registered in Lebanon
- (Co-) Applicants must be:
- Local ministries and governmental organizations
- Youth or labor organizations
- NGO’s (local, regional and / or global)
- Education and research institutions (local, regional and / or global)
- International NGO’s, regional and global research institutes and regional and global education institutions can participate as co-applicants in a project, in which a Lebanese registered entity takes the lead.
- (Co-)Applications from research institutes and education institutions: this type of institutional cooperation has to be practical and demand-driven and should arise from the needs of local organizations.
