Small Grants - VF (EN)

Projects financed within Small Grants should fall within one of the fol­low­ing six categories:

  1. cul­tural cooperation,
  2. sci­en­tific exchange and research,
  3. edu­ca­tion,
  4. youth exchange,
  5. cross-border coop­er­a­tion,
  6. pro­mo­tion of tourism.

With the excep­tion of cross-border coop­er­a­tion, enti­ties from at least three Visegrad Group (V4) coun­tries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) must be involved (e.g., a V4 orga­nizer and at least two V4 part­ners); it is advised, how­ever, to include part­ners from all V4 coun­tries. Any orga­ni­za­tion or nat­ural per­son in the world (with the excep­tion of insti­tu­tions directly funded from state bud­gets) is eli­gi­ble for the fund­ing pro­vided that the pro­posed project has “Visegrad” fea­tures (for inspi­ra­tion please see pre­vi­ously approved grants).

Most recip­i­ents are non-governmental orga­ni­za­tions (NGOs), munic­i­pal­i­ties and schools or other pub­lic insti­tu­tions. Maximum con­tri­bu­tion of the Fund for each Small Grant project is €6,000. The finan­cial con­tri­bu­tion of the Fund can­not exceed 70% of total project costs includ­ing the in-kind con­tri­bu­tion of the appli­cant, or in-kind con­tri­bu­tions of other sub­jects. The max­i­mum time frame of the pro­posed bud­get is 6 months (even if the projects are envis­aged to last longer).

Annual bud­get: €600,000
Max. time frame: 6 months
Deadlines: 1 March, 1 June, 1 September and 1 December

All grant appli­ca­tions must be sub­mit­ted through the on-line appli­ca­tion sys­tem by 12:00 (noon) CET on a given dead­line date; signed hard-copy ver­sions (print­outs) with accom­pa­ny­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion can be per­son­ally deliv­ered by 16:30 CET on the same day or sent by post with that day’s post­mark as the latest.
