Standard Grants

With the excep­tion of cross-border projects, enti­ties from at least three Visegrad Group (V4) coun­tries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) must be involved (e.g., a V4 orga­nizer and at least two V4 part­ners). It is advised, how­ever, to include part­ners from all V4 coun­tries. Any orga­ni­za­tion or nat­ural per­son in the world (with the excep­tion of insti­tu­tions directly funded from state bud­gets) is eli­gi­ble for the fund­ing pro­vided that the pro­posed project has “Visegrad” fea­tures (for inspi­ra­tion please see pre­vi­ously awarded grants). For more details see the grant guide­lines.

Most recip­i­ents are non-governmental civil-society and civil soci­ety orga­ni­za­tions (NGOs and CSOs), munic­i­pal­i­ties, schools and other pub­lic insti­tu­tions. Minimum con­tri­bu­tion of the Fund for each Standard Grants is €6,001 and more. The finan­cial con­tri­bu­tion of the Fund can­not exceed 80% of total project costs includ­ing the in-kind con­tri­bu­tion of the appli­cant, or in-kind con­tri­bu­tions of other sub­jects. The max­i­mum time frame of the pro­posed bud­get is 12 months (even if the projects are envis­aged to last longer).

Projects financed within Standard Grants should fall within one of the fol­low­ing six cat­e­gories: cul­tural coop­er­a­tionsci­en­tific exchange and researchedu­ca­tionyouth exchangecross-border coop­er­a­tion or pro­mo­tion of tourism.
