Deadline: 26.11.2014
Scottish International Development Organisations can now apply for funding through year two of the Scottish Government's International Development Small Grants Programme. This will distribute approximately £500,000 in 2015 to support projects that help some of the world's poorest countries and fit within the Scottish Government's International Development Policy. Eligible projects must be focused in one of the Scottish Government's priority countries, contribute to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (and the post-2015 Framework in due course), and the alleviation of poverty and economic growth in the priority countries. These are: Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and the Indian States of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa. Incorporated not-for- profit organisations which have a presence in Scotland and an annual turnover of less than £150,000 are eligible to apply. The Programme is specifically intended to accommodate smaller requests for funding to contribute to current International Development policy and outcomes and to overarching Scottish Government outcomes. Therefore, although there are maximum grant levels in place, it is envisaged that a range of project sizes will be supported through the Programme. There are three types of grants available: Project, Feasibility and Capacity Building. Applicants may only apply for one type of grant in each funding year.
