The IHEU-HIVOS Humanist Network and Development grants programme for 2014 is now open.
IHEU-Hivos grants are available to IHEU Member Organizations for work in the promotion of Humanism, secularism, human rights, the scientific method, or which helps the organization to build capacity or new competencies.
IHEU and HIVOS have been collaborating since 1988 to promote Humanist-oriented development, through human rights and Humanist networking oriented projects. All applications regarding this programme should be directed to IHEU as specified in the Grants Notice and Application Form (see below).[Note: This programme covers work and capacity-building locally. It is not the same as the grants programme for World Humanist Congress. That is a separate fund, providing travel and other expenses for attending the Congress in 2014, and can be found on the WHC2014 website.]
The IHEU-Hivos grants programme is only for organizations that are already members of the IHEU (though “Applicant Members” may also apply), and which are located in developing countries according to the DAC list.
The deadline for applications is 4 April 2014. More information about grant criteria, funding availability and details about how projects will be assessed and monitored, can be found in the formal Grants Notice.
