Share-Net International is excited to announce that our 2024 grant-making round is open for applications from October 3, 2023! The 2024 Knowledge Activation Grants are open to all Share-Net members, and applications must be received by the deadline of October 31st, 2023, at 23:59 CET. 

Our Knowledge Activation Grants 

Our grants contribute to supporting knowledge management amongst our members. We aim to activate sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) knowledge, supporting SRHR projects and communities that are often not prioritised or have limited access to SRHR funding, including young people, people with disabilities, LGBTI+, sex workers, and people of colour. Our grants facilitate the uptake of knowledge, research, and documentation practices and influence practitioners and policymakers in the SRHR field. We believe that activating knowledge is a powerful tool to dismantle systems of oppression and uphold the sexual and reproductive rights embedded in the human rights frameworks adopted in most contexts. 

Grant Types and Funding Available 

We have three types of grants available, with varying scales of funding for each grant type. Share-Net International has up to a maximum of €200,000 available in total for all grants that will be made in the 2024 grant-making round. The upper limit of each individual grants awarded is €25,000. 

Grant type 1: Knowledge Collaboration Grant

Funding amount: up to €25.000 euros 

Purpose: Contribute to creating knowledge product(s) for improving policy and practice in SRHR. This grant makes it possible for more than one organisational member of SNI to strategically formulate a sound proposal for the SRHR movement and other SNI network members. Ideally, collaborations are not meant for more than four organisations unless a strong justification exists. 

Grant type 2: Knowledge Translation Grant

Funding amount: up to €10.000 euros 

Purpose: Contribute to creating knowledge product(s) for improving policy and practice in SRHR. This grant makes it possible for one organisational member of SNI to formulate a valuable proposal for the SRHR movement and other SNI network members. In addition, with this grant, SNI intends its members to sensitise stakeholders on the SRHR issue of concern and provide a clear strategy for achieving that goal. 

Grant type 3: Knowledge Generation 

Funding amount: up to €7.500 euros 

Purpose: Contribute to funding research and documentation of practices in SRHR, particularly in contexts with knowledge gaps and limited knowledge about specific issues or affected communities. If ethical approval is required, this additional amount should be requested in the proposal, and the maximum amount, if needed. If funding allows, a grant increase for ethical approval may be granted.
