- An itemized budget proposal of no more than one page in length detailing how you plan to use the grant money (maximum U.S. $7,500).
This year, the Rowell Fund has decided to give priority to projects that deal with impacts of climate change in Tibet. Nevertheless, applications relating to other following themes, which were issues of importance to the late Galen and Barbara Rowell, are welcome:
- Humanitarian Projects;
- Journalism/Literature; or
- Women’s projects.
Eligibility: Tibetans from any country are eligible to apply. Tibetans working for organizations may apply on behalf of the organization, provided that the applicant is central to the implementation of the project’s work. Non-Tibetans are ineligible for grants from the Rowell Fund for Tibet.
Projected Timeline for Grant Selection: Following receipt applications will be compiled by ICT staff and sent to the Advisory Board of the Rowell Fund for Tibet in late October. The Advisory Board will select grantees in November. Applicants will be notified in early December and funds will be distributed in mid-December.
