Support for developing your proposal

There are several ways to receive support with developing a project proposal from the Diaspora Project Support:

  • Individual counselling: The Diaspora Programme offers individual counselling on project proposal development to prospective applicants. Counselling meetings must be requested through email to [email protected] minimum two weeks before requested meeting date. A draft of the application must be submitted one week before the meeting date. At least two organization members engaged in the project must participate in the counselling meeting.
  • Workshops: In the project design stage, Diaspora Project Support offers workshops in e.g. proposal writing or budgeting. For applicants selected to proposal development stage, mandatory courses on project cycle management and finance and procurement are offered. A full list of events is available here.
