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 Latin America Program of the Open Society Foundations focuses its funding on accountability and transparency, drug policy, human rights, citizen security, and homicide reduction.

The Education Support Program and the Early Childhood Program of the Open Society Foundations are welcoming proposals to improve the educational opportunities of marginalized children in Hungary.
The Open Society Foundations will award individual grants to former senior-level government officials and staff who have played a significant role in advancing social change.
