BİRLİKTE Support Program Call for Proposals

We continue to meet with CSOs in the second implementation period of the BİRLİKTE Support Program, which we have developed with our long experience and knowledge to strengthen civil society in Turkey.

You have until August 3, 2022 to submit your proposals for the new grant period of BİRLİKTE Support Program, which we have been implementing since 2017 to provide institutional grants and mentoring support for the institutional development of rights-based CSOs.

In the new period of the BİRLİKTE Support Program, we will provide institutional grants to CSOs to help them cover their basic expenses, as well as mentoring support for institutional development and gender equality mainstreaming. In addition to this support, we will also provide a space for meetings and exchanges and provide networking, communication and visibility support so that participating CSOs can learn from each other and develop collaborations.

We will implement BİRLİKTE Support Program, which is supported by the European Union as a sub-program under the grant project "TOGETHER for Rights-Based CSOs in Turkey". Detailed information about the program and the application process can be found in the application guide at the link below.
