Closing Date: January 20,2012.

The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world. Each year, NED makes more than 1,000 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad who are working for democratic goals in more than 90 countries.  Since its founding in 1983, the Endowment has remained on the leading edge of democratic struggles everywhere, while evolving into a multifaceted institution that is a hub of activity, resources and intellectual exchange for activists, practitioners and scholars of democracy the world over.
How are funding decisions made?
Funding decisions are made on a quarterly basis by the NED Board of Directors. In addition to evaluating how a program fits within the Endowment's overall priorities, the Board considers factors such as the urgency of a program, its relevance to specific needs and conditions in a particular country, and the democratic commitment and experience of the applicant.
What types of programs is the Endowment interested in?
The Endowment is especially interested in proposals that originate with local democratic groups. It is also interested in nonpartisan programs seeking to strengthen democratic values. Note that the Endowment does not make grants to individuals.
All proposed projects must be consistent with the Endowment's general purposes as briefly outlined in the first paragraph of About Us.
How can my organization apply for a grant from the Endowment?
To apply for a NED grant, submit a proposal cover sheet, proposal and budget to or to the appropriate regional Program contact person at the NED. The Endowment can only process incoming proposals if they are accompanied by a Proposal Cover Sheet.
