Call for Applications for the Youth Solidarity Fund
The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations is launching the 2014-2015 edition of the Youth Solidarity Fund. This program provides seed funding to outstanding youth projects addressing areas of primary concern to the UNAOC, i.e. fostering mutual respect, understanding and long-term positive relationships between peoples of different cultures and religions.
The Youth Solidarity Fund (YSF) awards grants (up to $25,000) to selected projects that demonstrate innovative youth approaches to intercultural or interfaith dialogue. It only supports projects that are entirely developed and managed by youth for the benefit of youth.
The age definition used by UNAOC to characterize youth is a person who is between 18 and 35 years old.
All eligible youth organizations are encouraged to apply.
Deadline to submit applications is 12 January 2015 11:59PM, New York City time.
