Travel grants are given to organizations led by women, girls, and trans people to attend national, regional, and international gatherings and events with the purpose of strengthening women’s rights movements, influencing decisions, and mobilizing resources.
We support groups who are organizing their own time-sensitive convenings and events with event organizing grants.
Please note that to be considered for a travel or event grant:
An organization must have received a grant from the Global Fund for Women within the past 5 years.
The proposal must be submitted at least 8 weeks before the start date of the event or travel.
An organization may only have ONE travel or event proposal open or under consideration at a given time.
An organization must have an active Organizational Profile.
Interested organizations that meet the above criteria can submit a proposal through their account on our online application site (see Step 1).
Due to limited funding, only those organizations that have received a grant from the Global Fund for Women in the past five years can apply for travel and event grants.
Global Fund for Women provides three types of grants: general support grants, travel and event organizing grants, and crisis grants. Please read the Criteria section below carefully to make sure your organization is eligible before proceeding.
Please note that our application process is now online and we do not accept proposals sent by email. Our application forms are available on our site in five languages: Arabic, English, French, Russian, and Spanish.
Our two-step process
Our application process has two steps:
Step 1: Register your organization by submitting an Organizational Profile.
Submit a proposal for a General Support or Crisis Grant when your organization is invited
Submit a proposal for a Travel or Event Organizing Grant if your organization meets the criteria below for Travel and Event Organizing grants
Both steps must be completed through our online system. Please see the grant descriptions below for instructions.
Step 1. Submit an Organizational Profile to register your group’s interest in funding
To be eligible for funding, all organizations must begin by submitting an organizational profile via our online application site.
Organizational Profiles allow us to learn about an organization’s strategies, priorities, and programs in order to determine whether they align with current funding opportunities.
Please carefully review our criteria and priorities below before completing a profile. Our profile forms are open year-round in our online system. Groups can submit a profile at any time. Completed profiles are valid for two years, at which time the group can update the information in their profiles.
Please note that although submitting a profile is the first step in applying for funding, it does not guarantee an invitation to submit a grant proposal. Due to funding limitations, not all groups will be invited to submit a grant proposal.
A PDF guide on how to create an online account and Organizational Profile can be found here.
Step 2. Submit a grant proposal
In order to submit a proposal, groups MUST have an active Organizational Profile. Proposal forms and requirements vary depending on the grant type and funding opportunity. Please review the instructions and requirements below as well as any instructions provided in the proposal forms.
Please note all proposals are submitted online, using the same account username and password created to submit the Organizational Profile.
