GSDI Small Grants Program 2017 - Call for Proposals Submission date extended to 8 June!
The GSDI Association has been making Small Grants Program awards since 2003 – our longest running project. The cash grants are for US$ 2,500. Although this is not a large amount of money, in emerging nations and developing economy SDI’s, it can go a long way toward SDI preparedness, awareness raising, for building some component of an SDI or to add to SDI sustainability.

Applications for the 2017 program are due not later than 8 June 2017.
