Grants, Scholarships, and fellowships
The Open Society Foundations award grants, scholarships, and fellowships throughout the year to organizations and individuals who share Open Society values. We look for grantees who have a vision and whose efforts will lead to lasting social change. The vast majority of our grants are awarded to organizations that we approach directly, but we do list some open opportunities below. Other funding opportunities are available through Open Society's network of national and regional foundations.
The New Executives Fund provides key support to new nonprofit heads to help organizations navigate leadership transitions.
The Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance seeks to educate future leaders who can integrate practical field experience and local knowledge with state-of-the-art research in policy development and implementation.
The Open Society Fellowship is designed to support individuals pursuing innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges.
