WBF launches MOVE Grants!

From today until 18 April 2023, individuals and organisations from the Western Balkans area are welcome to apply and benefit from the newest grant-giving mechanism of the Western Balkans Fund.

Move Grants are a new scheme that, for the first time, target not only Civil Society Organisations but also individuals residing in our region.

As such, Move Grants is open to students, researchers, professors, artists, sportspeople, etc, besides the usual pool of our Call for Proposals, Civil Society Organisations, Non-for-Profit, Associations, Business Clusters, Networks, etc.

It has been designed with the purpose of being a flexible, reliable and short-notice support instrument for our stakeholders. It supports individuals with up to 5.000 Euros and organisations with up to 10.000 Euros.

Move Grants will run parallel to the most prominent Call for Proposals. In 2023, applications for Move Grants will be open in March, June and October.

During the application phase, we will be available to meet and reply to any of your questions in person at the following venues:

Tirana | 17 March, from 11.00-13.00 at Tulla Center
Podgorica | 20 March, from 13.00-15.00 at CUE Hotel
Prishtina | 21 March, from 13.00-14.30 and from 16.00-17.30 at Rings Restaurant
