Awarded Grants

The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and inclusive democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. The vast majority of the grants made by Open Society are to organizations, but we also award a limited number of grants to individuals, primarily through scholarships and fellowships offered across a number of different programs.
