Open Society Institute
|Category: Democracy & Government
The unsolicited grants category of the Institute’s Information Program seeks projects that aim to enhance the ability to access, exchange, and produce knowledge and information; and to use new tools and techniques to empower civil society. Three main focus areas comprise most of the grantmaking: access to knowledge, civil society communication, and open information policy. Supported projects are intended to benefit developing and transitioning countries. The Program prefers to fund projects rather than support core funding requests. Past funded activities include information and knowledge capacity-building events; technology and policy analysis; advocacy campaigns; and innovative projects that test new ground. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposal outlines rather than full proposals. Additional information is available on the Web site.
