IDW Youth Funding 2024
Applications will be opened soon.
Youth can apply for funding upto $500 to host their own event in their own communities. This Fund aims to create young public engagement leaders.
To celebrate International Development Week (IDW), ACIC is excited to offer funding for youth (ages 15-30) to host their own events! Events can be around any theme broadly related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but they must take place during the first week of February and, of course, meet provincial public health guidelines. Successful applicants will receive between $200-500 towards their event, based on the strength of their application/proposed need. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis until funding is allocated.
Applications are currently closed, but will be opening soon.
