APPLICATIONS FOR THE SPRING 2017 GRANT CYCLE ARE NOW CLOSED.

APPLICANTS WILL BE NOTIFIED ABOUT THE BOARD’S DECISION
BY MARCH 7, 2017. 


The Hungary Initiatives Foundation invites applications for Art and Culture Small Grants. Interested organizations can apply for grants up to $5,000 until February 5, 2017 for art and culture projects that are in line with and advance the fundamental mission of HIF.

The Hungary Initiatives Foundation is committed to fostering the understanding of Hungarian culture in the United States, as well as strengthening the cultural ties between the two nations. We therefore invite interested organizations to apply for “Art and Culture Small Grants”. The proposed programs must be aimed at introducing, popularizing and educating about Hungarian history, art and culture among the Hungarian American communities and wider American audiences. The details of the application process are below. Before applying, please read the below guidelines carefully.

Available grant

Applicants can request funding up to $5,000 per project. As a principle, The Hungary Initiatives Foundation does not provide full funding for projects. Preference will be given to applications where in addition to HIF there are strong additional sources of funding used for a project. Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to the project through a meaningful contribution of their own human and/or financial resources.

Guidelines

Preference will be given to projects that:

  • foster cooperation between various organizations or are jointly submitted by more than one organization,
  • are focused on youth outreach and education,
  • target non-Hungarian audiences,
  • involve larger non-Hungarian educational and cultural institutions and organizations as project partner,
  • have a long term vision and growth potential.

The project must be realized until December 31, 2017.

Eligibility

US-based 501(c)(3) organizations (US-based charitable or educational institutions), Hungary-based educational institutions, or Hungary-based 501(c)(3)-equivalent organizations can all apply for this grant. Prospective grantee partners must have systems and processes for ensuring responsible management of funds.

Applicants will be notified of the Board’s decision by March 7, 2017.
