Who Can Apply?

Eligible schools, networks and NGOs can register for the Grant Call via a registration button that appears on our grants tab. For guidance on your eligibility please refer to the WWGS 2020/21 Grant Guidelines here.

The WWGS Annual Grant Call is an online application process and opened on the 20th April 2020 and has now closed for this school year.

Any school, School Cluster, School Network or NGO applying for funding for the school year 2020/2021, and who was a grantee in 2019/2020 must complete an end of year Report on the previous year’s grant. 

The Grant Call will open again in April 2021. 

Grants for Schools

How much can our school apply for?

Global Citizenship Education (GCE) grants are available to all post-primary schools in the Republic of Ireland to apply for, with categories of grant funding ranging from €600 up to €1,200

A group of schools may also apply together as part of a School Cluster Application for grants of up to €6,000. Please let us know if you wish to avail of this option.

What type of GCE activities can our school apply for?

Our Annual Grant Application Guidelines outline the specific type of GCE activities for which you will be eligible to apply for funding (and not eligible for funding) – depending on whether you are a starter or established GCE school. You can also get in touch with a member of the WWGS team, on the kind of GCE activity that your school may be best suited to apply for.

Grants for NGOs & School Networks

How much can our organisation apply for

There is no funding threshold in place but in terms of submitting a grant application, applicants should primarily be guided by their own relative capacity to implement, value for money principles, and the number of schools they would expect to engage with through the project.
