The objective should be to educate, enrich, foster dialogue, and inspire. A specific connection to Germany is always welcome.

We will also provide selected funding recipients with promotional support of their projects through the German Consulate General’s social media platforms.

The deadline to apply is March 20, 2023.

Selected applicants will be contacted via email and asked to fill out a separate application form for funding provided by the German Consulate General.
  • Please note that we may be unable to consider all applicants due to the Consulate General’s limited funds. An application for financial support does not guarantee any right to allocation of funds.
  • The selection of supported projects is the sole discretion of the German Consulate General and the exact amount of financial support awarded will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
