Small Grants and Fellowships

Small Grants and Fellowships: Front Line has a small grants program which has been disbursing €150,000 per year to Human Rights Defenders at risk around the world.

Grants are given to organisations working for human rights as well as to individual human rights defenders at risk.

Grants are given for the specific purpose of strengthening the protection of human rights defenders at risk. Grants are for amounts up to a maximum of €6,000.

Grants will not normally be made for 100% of the cost of a project. Applications may be made in Arabic, Russian, English, French or Spanish.

All applicants will receive a written response whether or not their application is successful.


Groups receiving grants are required to submit a short written report, including all receipts, on completion of their project.

If for any reason a project does not go ahead, or gets alternative funding, the grant must be returned to Front Line and cannot be reallocated for other work.

Front Line may check that the same grant has not already been funded by other international funders. If a report is not received on completion of the grant the applicant will no longer be eligible for any further grants.

Applications can be sent by post, email or fax to: Front Line, 81 Main Street, Blackrock, Co. Dublin, Ireland. Email: grants[at] Fax: +353 1 212 1001. Tel: + 353 1 212 3750.
