Grant Description
Grants and in-kind support to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, research and educational institutions, indigenous groups, faith-based organizations, and local governments for innovative projects that foster intercultural understanding and dialogue. Awards are granted to organizations around the world that seek to grow their range of action within a broad range of social and cultural issues.

The main objective of the Intercultural Innovation Hub is to connect, empower and elevate innovative civil society organizations. IIH identifies and supports innovative projects that are already being implemented and have potential for expansion and replication. Selected organizations should implement the project with the overall goal to sustainably expand and adapt to other contexts. Projects presented within this call must have shown successful outcomes during at least its first year of implementation.

Recipients will benefit from a comprehensive one-year capacity-building program aimed at strengthening their work. The support program will consist of funding, training and capacity-building, customized support and mentoring, and membership to the “Intercultural Leaders”. After the one-year support program, alumni of the IIH will still benefit from their Intercultural Leaders membership, which gives access to a community of change makers working in the field of intercultural dialogue.
