Lipman-Miliband Trust: The Southern Africa Fund
Deadline: 30 September 2016
The Lipman-Miliband Trust is seeking applications for its Southern Africa Fund in order to support progressive social, economic and cultural projects which originate from, or engage with, Southern Africa.
The Trust’s mission is to help support the practice and dissemination of socialist education and research, an area routinely discriminated against by other charities or official sources.
Applications can be for small projects but also could be for larger amounts than the £1,000 limit for projects funded from the Trust’s main fund.
Aims of the Trust
- To promote research into the history, theory and practice of socialism and other allied fields of study;
- To support cultural projects associated with socialist education and research;
- To support research and education associated with progressive causes involving community activity and social movements;
- To enable the wider dissemination of such research and cultural activity through publication or the procuring of publication by means of books, pamphlets, reports, films, lectures, conferences, exhibitions and all other suitable media.
Guidelines for Applicants
- The Trust cannot award grants for work associated with political parties.
- The Trust cannot subsidise costs for undergraduate or postgraduate studies.
- There is no rule limiting the number of applications any one candidate may make, although no more than one grant can be awarded in any 24 months to any applicant.
- The Trust will not consider the payment of recurring salaries. It will consider the payment of fees specifically related to the project proposal. In respect of such fees the applicant must make clear how the payment is comprised: specifically the expected hours of work on the project and the total payment. The Trust supports good employment practice and requires any payments to comply with minimum wage standards in the country where the project is to be carried out and to be in accordance with any collective agreement negotiated with an independent trade union where such exist.
- All recipients will be expected to submit a concise report back on completion of their projects. The Secretary can supply you with a feedback form.
