Applications for funding from the Nordic Gender Equality Fund

On 1 March, applications will open for funding from the Nordic Gender Equality Fund. Approximately DKK 2 million will be distributed to Nordic gender equality projects in 2019.

Would your gender equality work benefit from a Nordic dimension? Or could your Nordic cooperation include gender equality work? Then you can apply for funding from the Nordic Gender Equality Fund.

Shared knowledge effects change. The Fund finances cooperation projects involving at least three organisations from at least three Nordic countries, of which the Faroe Islands, Greenland or the Aaland Islands may constitute one; or at least two of the Nordic countries and at least one organisation from Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania, or north-west Russia. Projects that aim to respond in various ways to the problems of gender inequality, contribute new knowledge and promote exchanges of experience, or which manifest and develop Nordic cooperation, can apply for grants from the Fund.

The Nordic Gender Equality Fund addresses a broad target group and is open to applications for funding from volunteer organisations, networks, public sector activities, other non-commercial actors, small businesses, and more. The Fund finances activities of various kinds including events, inquiries/investigations, network-building activities, and activity projects.

In NIKK’s guide you will find all details needed for applying for funding from the fund.
