The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) Grants
The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is seeking proposals from non-governmental organizations, including independent media worldwide, for projects that advance democratic goals and strengthen democratic institutions.
NED encourages applications from organizations working in diverse environments including newly established democracies, semi-authoritarian countries, highly repressive societies and countries undergoing democratic transition.
NED is interested in proposals from organizations for nonpartisan programs that seek to: promote and defend human rights and the rule of law, support freedom of information and independent media, and promote accountability and transparency.
Each year the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) makes direct grants to hundreds of nongovernmental organizations worldwide working to advance democratic goals and strengthen democratic institutions.
Independent media organizations, civic groups and associations can apply.
Grant amounts vary depending on the size and scope of the projects, but the average grant lasts 12 months and is around US $50 000.
