Applications Now Open for Documenting Ukraine Grants

Picture of documents

We are now accepting applications for Documenting Ukraine grants. These one-time grants of 5000 EUR enable Ukrainian intellectuals and creative professionals to work on documentation projects that establish and preserve a factual record - whether through reporting, gathering published source material, collecting oral testimony, or other means - or bring meaning to events through artistic interpretation and intellectual reflection.

Applications must be submitted through the IWM's online application platform; we will be unable to consider applications sent via email. The preferred language for the application is English. However, Ukrainian applications are also accepted.

Application materials consist of:

  • Project description (1-3 pages) including planned activities, significance, information about who will be carrying out the project and their qualifications, and how the project relates to the mission of Documenting Ukraine
  • CV
  • Contact details of one reference person who is familiar with your work and can speak to its suitability for Documenting Ukraine

You also have the option to submit additional supporting materials that you believe will help the jury evaluate your application. The application platform accepts text and image files; if you have video files to share as part of your application, you will need to upload them to a video sharing site and include the link in your application.

Please note: If you, another member of your organization, or a project you are part of has previously received funding from Documenting Ukraine, please note that repeat funding is now possible on a competitive basis; in this application cycle, a maximum of 10 repeat grants can be awarded. Please ensure that your project description clearly addresses your results so far and how additional funding will enable you to further develop the project.

Applications are due 10 March 2023 at 23:59 Vienna time (UTC+1:00). Candidates will be informed of the outcome of their application by 1 May 2023.
