The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world.

To that end, NED is inviting applications for its Grants Program. Through the program, grants averaging $50,0000 will be awarded to nongovernmental organizations worldwide, including civic organizations, associations, independent media, and other similar organizations working to advance democratic goals and strengthen democratic institutions.

The organization is interested in proposals from nonpartisan programs that seek to promote and defend human rights and the rule of law; support freedom of information and independent media; strengthen democratic ideas and values; promote accountability and transparency; strengthen civil society organizations; strengthen democratic political processes and institutions; promote civic education; support democratic conflict resolution; promote freedom of association; and strengthen a broad-based market economy.

NED encourages applications from organizations working in diverse environments, including newly established democracies, semi-authoritarian countries, highly repressive societies, and countries undergoing democratic transitions.
