    DEADLINE ALERT! Grants for students and more funding for civil society organizations 

    Student Grants & CSO FundingHello Funds Fans!  I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend.  A few more fabulous funding opportunities crossed my desk and without further ado, here they are:

    The Dell Social Innovation Challenge annual competition is open to ALL university students in the world–-it doesn’t matter what school you attend or what you’re studying. And you don’t need a venture plan to enter. Everything from early-stage ideas to mature projects that are up and running can compete to win. Your innovation project could be vested in starting a nonprofit organization, a for-profit business, a campaign, community volunteerism, university club or even other informal or formal operations. Your individual user profile gives you an option to find project team members, join existing teams, attract support and help others on their projects.  Deadline to enter: January 28th, 2013.  The Grand Prize Awards will be five cash prizes totaling $140,000.

    For civil society organizations, the Commonwealth Foundation contributes to sustainable development in the context of effective, responsive and accountable governance with civil society participation.  It will support innovation, share replicable and sustainable models, and promote good practice across the participatory governance sector.  Participatory governance is about how the state, the market and Civil Society interact to effect change. These interactions involve the inclusion of Civil Society in decision-making processes, enabling citizens to exercise voice and vote and engaging in policy formation among others. “Citizens are engaged in public venues at a variety of times…thus allowing them to be involved in policy formation, selection and oversight”.  Under the the Participatory Governance Grants programme, the maximum grant is up to ÂŁ30,000 per year.  Multi-year projects are accepted up to three years.  Deadline: January 31st, 2013 (5pm GMT).  They are inviting CSOs to submit an application addressing either Dialogue or Collaboration within the broader theme of Participatory Governance or a combination of the two areas.  The grants programme will be particularly supportive of proposals that mainstream the Foundation’s cross-cutting outcome areas in their project design:

    • Gender equality
    • Environmental sustainability
    • Cultural respect and understanding

    And last on the list for today, another opportunity for students through the Alexia Foundation which provides educational opportunities and cash grants to help students produce picture stories that further the Foundation’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding.  Deadline is Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, at 5 p.m. Eastern time.

    You are encouraged to consider stories that explore cultural understanding in or near you local community. While we do not discourage proposals on foreign topics, the judges give no extra weight to foreign topics, and indeed, think that you are more likely to complete a story near home than one abroad.  We welcome proposals for still photography projects or for multimedia projects.

    NOW OPEN: CFP’s in Forestry, Culture and BC Arts 

    Call for Proposals: Forestry, Culture & ArtsHello again, Funds Fans!  It’s an eclectic day  on the funding front with offerings in the realms of tree seed research, culture projects and arts programs.

    The Forest Genetics Council of British Columbia (FGC) has issued a Call for Proposals for funding under the Genecology and Seed Transfer Program (Program) for 2013-2014. This program is funded by the Land Based Investment Program and administered by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO).   Deadline: 4:00 P.M. on Thursday, January 31, 2013.

    Scientifically sound and administratively efficient seed-transfer policy is an important component of forest management in British Columbia. Benefits include well-adapted forests (resilience), better productivity, assisted migration under climate change, and operational efficiency. Good policy also provides a framework by which operational activities are structured, including seed planning unit size, breeding program and seed orchard target areas, operational seed inventories, and genetic conservation.

    Genecology research provides the scientific foundation upon which seed transfer policy is built, and also identifies tree populations with desirable characteristics that can be used in breeding and seed orchard programs. With changing climates, genecology research will support the development of operational responses in the form of tree species range and population expansion to maintain well adapted and productive regeneration. Finally, an understanding of genetic diversity patterns through genecology research allows efficient genetic conservation.

    Final approval of all projects is subject to the availability of funds.  Priority will be given to proposals that:

    • support FGC objectives set out in the FGC Strategic Plan for 2009-2014,
    • address critical research and technical needs in genecology, and
    • address critical research and technical needs in seed transfer.

    In other news, the European Union Culture Programme invites Canadian cultural organizations to propose initiatives which celebrate Europe’s cultural diversity and enhance shared cultural heritage through the development of cross-border co-operation.  Eligible applicants are organisations with legal personality whose main activity is in the cultural field (areas of cultural or creative activity) and whose head office is in one of the countries taking part in the EU’s Culture Programme.  Deadline for proposals is May 3, 2013.  Interested applicants should review the Guide and note that this Call for Proposals is listed as Strand 1.3.5 in the guidebook.

    The project proposal must:

    • have a duration of not more than 24 months; the starting date of the project is between November 1, 2013 and October 31, 2014;
    • involve a minimum of three co-organisers drawn from three different countries taking part in the Programme;
    • involve cultural cooperation with at least one partner from Canada; at least 50% of the project activities should take place in Canada;
    • be the subject of an application requesting a grant of no less than EUR 50 000 and no more than EUR 200 000; the grant is limited to 50% of the eligible budget of the project.

    Also, please note that the BC Arts Council has two upcoming application deadlines as follows: January 15th, 2013: Special Project Assistance – Innovations program which supports extraordinary commissioning, research, creation, development and/or production costs incurred by B.C. arts and cultural organizations for projects that demonstrate innovation, experimentation and risk taking. Funding will be provided for the commissioning, research, creation, development, production and/or public presentation of new works across the province by organizations with a demonstrated track record in the creation, development and production or public presentation of new work.  Grants range up to $50,000 +.

    January 31st, 2013: Project Assistance – Community Arts Festivals which assists community-based arts and cultural organizations in British Columbia in the production of a local community arts festival. Awards under this program are intended to assist with the fees to professional artists and technicians engaged for the festival. Eligible projects may include presentation of original work, existing repertoire or exhibitions, or exploration of diverse forms. Festivals may feature a combination of local and touring artists. Awards will provide up to a maximum of $7,500. Priority will be given to festivals that engage B.C. and Canadian artists.
