IWG / WomenWin Grant Applications First Round closing 30 April 2009

Following the success of the 2008 grants, the IWG and WomenWin are pleased to advise that applications for the funding of sporting projects for the empowerment of women and girls are being accepted for 2009.

Applicants will need to read the grant procedures and complete the relevant grant application form available on the IWG website ( ).

Programme Implementation Grants are now being accepted.  These are grants for supporting programs or pilots that implement sport programmes for girls and women.   

Applications for the first round for 2009 close on April 30 2009. 

In order to meet the IWG’s strategic objective relating to the focus on the Oceania regions, there may be some preference given to projects within this region although this does not exclude applications from other regions including Asia, Africa, Middle East, Latin America and the Carribean.   We regret to advise that applications submitted through this WomenWin and IWG funding initiative will not be available for those organisations based in Europe or North America .

A selection of successful funded projects will be showcased at the 2010 World Conference on Women and Sport in Sydney .

Further information can be found here.  We look forward to receiving your applications for funding.
