Grants for Schools/ Post-Primary Settings

How much can a school apply for?

Global Citizenship Education (GCE) grants are available to all post-primary schools/ settings in Ireland to apply for, with categories of grant funding ranging from up to €800.

A group of schools may also apply together as part of a School Cluster Application for grants of up to €5,000. 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?

Applicants can apply to WWGS for maximum multi-annual grant funding of up to €80,000 under Grant Call 2024. Please note that this is the maximum grant that an organisation can apply for to cover the full two-year multi-annual period from August 2024 up until August 2026.
