Frequently Asked Questions

What´s an Organisational Scholarship Award?

The Organisational Scholarship Award is our annual support in capacity and network building offered to 5 - 10 small-sized civil society organisations (with less than 50 paid staff members). The Award will be in the form of a CSA training voucher that has to be redeemed within one year. The scholarship voucher worth up to 4,000 EURO can only be used for CSA training or/and facilitation fees. It does not include travel, visa, and other costs.
