National Endowment for Democracy Invites Applications to Strengthen Democratic Institutions

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, the organization is inviting applications for its Grants Program, which will award, on average, grants of $50,000 to nongovernmental organizations, including civic organizations, associations, and independent media, dedicated to advancing democratic goals and strengthening democratic institutions.

The organization is interested in proposals from nonpartisan programs that aim 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 that work in diverse environments, including newly established democracies, semi-authoritarian countries, highly repressive societies, and countries undergoing democratic transitions.

For complete program guidelines and application information, see the National Endowment for Democracy website.

Deadline: September 9, 2021
