EIL Seed Fund Now Open Until 24 June 2019!

EIL Seed Fund

Bring your awareness raising idea to life!

EIL Intercultural Learning is an Irish “not for profit” organisation that provides intercultural learning opportunities through study abroad, youth leadership, language training, travel awards, group educational programmes, and other cultural immersion activities for over 2,500 people each year.

It can be challenging when we have returned from an overseas project to continue to support worthy causes such as the ones we encountered abroad. There are many ways we can promote and highlight the issues and injustices witnessed.

On a long-term basis, an effective way in which volunteers can truly make a difference is to educate others about global justice, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the lives of ordinary people in the global south.

EIL recognises that it can be difficult for returned volunteers to continue their engagement here in Ireland. They may face financial barriers, time constraints or be unable to access the necessary help and support.

The EIL Seed Fund Micro Grant Scheme exists to assist returned volunteers to overcome these barriers by providing successful applicants with funding, guidance and support to implement their own awareness-raising projects in Ireland.

Please note that the projects can only be funded if they take place in Ireland and the project has not yet taken place.

You can apply to the Seed Fund as an individual or as part of a group. Both application forms are available on the EIL website and are also attached below.
