Visegrad+ Grants support projects which contribute to the democratization and transformation processes in selected countries and regions, especially non-EU member states in the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership countries.
Any legal entity is eligible for funding if applying on behalf of a justifiable consortium of project partners. Preferences are given to groups of non-governmental, civil society organizations (CSOs) and municipalities and local governments; applications submitted by schools, higher education institutions, research and scientific bodies and public institutions in general will also be considered. Natural persons (individual citizens) or institutions of state administration (ministries, government agencies, embassies, etc.) cannot apply nor can be valid project partners.
Who can apply?
- Consortium of organizations of which 3 or more are based in different Visegrad countries;
- All types of non-governmental, civil society organizations (CSOs); municipalities and local governments; schools, higher education institutions; research and scientific bodies and public institutions are eligible as lead partner (applicant) and partners in the consortia;
- Private entrepreneurs, companies with a legal entity, but only in areas not connected to their every-day business activity.
Who cannot apply?
- Institutions of state administration (ministries, government agencies, embassies, state-funded cultural institutes, state-owned companies);
- Natural persons (individual citizens);
- Private entrepreneurs with/without a legal entity, in areas connected to their everyday activity.
As a rule, your project must be implemented by at least three organizations (including the applicant) from three different V4 countries (“3xV4” rule). You are, however, encouraged to seek full V4 participation or give reasons if not including all four countries. Bilateral cross-border projects are an exception from the “3xV4” rule but only in proposals that directly benefit a specific border area between two neighboring V4 countries. Exceptions may also apply in cases when projects respond to concrete calls for proposals published by the Fund.
The proposed project and its desired outcome must be connected to the main mission of the applicant organization and their partners. The deliverables (events, products, activities) of the project must contribute to sustainable regional cooperation in the V4 region, the improvement of mutual awareness among societies and the development of cross-border civil society. For details on the project focus areas, please check the Objectives section of the grant programs on our website.
Proposals for Visegrad+ Grants are accepted regularly three times per year always by February 1, June 1 and October 1. Application must be submitted 12:00 p.m. (noon) CET on the given deadline date.
To apply for Visegrad+ Grants, your project must address one objective from one of the seven focus areas eligible for funding. Within the focus areas, specific objectives may apply to those Visegrad+ projects that target the countries of Eastern Partnership or Western Balkan countries. Each project proposal should be identified with only one focus area and one concrete objective which best corresponds with the project’s aims. The full list of focus areas and objectives to each grant program can be found on the Fund’s website.
Our unified application form for Visegrad Grants, Visegrad+ Grants or Visegrad Strategic Grants is available through an on-line system at http://my.visegradfund.org. Registering a new proposal is possible only ca. 30 days before each given deadline. Registering is possible only with a valid email address.
