Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility: fellowships and ad-hoc support for Ukrainian CSOs

The EU-funded Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility (EaP CSF) project has launched two calls for civil society activists and representatives from Ukraine, with a simplified process and without deadline for applications. 

Ukrainian applicants can apply for the 2022 EaP Civil Society Fellowship Programme and for ad-hoc support. Response on an ‘initial assessment’ is expected within seven working days.

The Fellowships are aimed at members of CSOs, activists, and other civically-minded women and men. As such, they are intended to be awarded to individuals to enhance their leadership skills. The EaP CSF  can support a project with an approximately €5,000 budget over a period of six months (up to eight months in exceptional cases).

The ‘Ad-Hoc’ Support is aimed at CSOs and civil society activists in the region, primarily with the objective of increasing cooperation and networking. The requests for support will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. In 2022, requests for support should involve actions addressing the theme #StandWithUkraine, which can be implemented in less than four months. Support can be requested for an amount between € 1,000 and €20,000.

Support for longer implementation periods or for bigger amounts might be referred to the European Union Delegation to Ukraine and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Please read carefully these short guidelines in English or Ukrainian to learn what kind of support is possible and what activities and applicants are eligible.
