Home Country Project Grants: Applicants for International Fellowships
may simultaneously apply for grants to support community-based projects
to be implemented in the fellow's home country in the year immediately
following the fellowship year. Proposed projects must have direct
impact on improving the lives of women and girls in the recipient's
home country. Preference is given to projects that relate to the

support for a one-year fellowship only, or for a fellowship in
combination with a project grant. Up to five Home Country Project
Grants will be awarded. Applications for Home Country Project Grants
may only be submitted as part of an International Fellowship
