The Fund for Gender Equality’s Second Call for Proposals (2011-2012) is seeking innovative and

impact-oriented proposals. The Fund will award grants in eligible countries in Africa, the Arab States, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Central Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean. For an online application, please see: http://www.unwomen.org/how-we-work/fund-for-gender-equality/application-guidelines/.

The Fund for Gender Equality has conducted this grantmaking cycle in a staggered manner in order to further increase access and language availability.

The second phase1 of the current grantmaking cycle (2011-2012) will be launched on March 1th, 2012 and will be open for eligible countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. The timeline for the second phase of the 2011-2012 Call for Proposals is as follows:

1 The first phase of the current grantmaking cycle (2011-2012) was launched on October 16th, 2011 and focused on the Arab States region. Selected grantees in the Arab States region were announced in March 2012.

2 The Fund has changed its formula for funding. We no longer divide our grants between Implementation and Catalytic Programs, instead, we are focusing on our two thematic areas (women’s political or economic empowerment), in alignment with UN Women’s recently approved Strategic Plan, with grants ranging between $200,000 and $1 Million USD for all eligible applicants.
