The "Small Grants" Programme

The "Small Grants" programme allows the Geneva International Academic Network (GIAN) to respond quickly to immediate needs and to seize opportunities that may occur. The contribution by the GIAN to projects submitted in the framework of the "Small Grants" programme is a maximum of SFr 50,000 per project.

The presence in Geneva, within academic institutions, international organisations, NGOs and the private sector, of a considerable number of highly qualified individuals allows the GIAN and its partners to respond promptly in the following areas:

Such projects, rapidly concluded and at relatively low cost can render important results in a brief period. As the effectiveness of such projects may depend upon timely implementation, an accelerated decision-making mechanism has been established. In general, a decision concerning a "Small Grant" will be communicated to applicants within three to six weeks after reception by the GIAN of the proposal and all required documents.

Requests for a "Small Grant" can be made throughout the year, except during the period between 15 June and 1 September. Due to changes currently being undertaken within Geneva's system of higher education, all "Small Grant" projects must be completed by 31 December 2007.
