ICSU Grants Programme

About the ICSU Grants Programme

The new Grants Programme of the International Councils for Science (ICSU) is setup in line with the external review, as a new modality to create international initiatives led by ICSU Unions.

Its intent is to foster Membership engagement by addressing long-standing priorities for ICSU members in developing science education, outreach and public engagement activities, and to mobilise resources for international scientific collaboration.

The Grants Programme is competitive and peer-reviewed. Proposals must be led jointly by at least 2 ICSU Scientific Unions. Proposals must focus on innovative, international, and multidisciplinary work that supports ICSU’s strategic priorities.
