Dear Fellow Activists,

See reminder email below on AWID's Innovation Seed Grant applications, 
due September 30th.  The grant application is attached.

Kind regards,
The 16 Days Team


*LAST CHANCE to submit your proposal to apply for an Innovation Seed 
Grant by September 30th, 2012!*

Dear Activist,

Warm greetings from AWID! Following our /Transforming Economic Power to 
Advance Women?s Rights and Justice/ International Forum, we are now 
launching a Call for Proposals to all Forum participants interested in 
applying for a USD $5,000 Innovation Seed Grant.

Did the Forum spark a new idea to contribute to the transformation of 
economic power in your work? Are you planning to share new concepts and 
connections from the Forum with others to help engage in economic 
debates and devise strategies to transform and reclaim economic power 
based on gender justice and women?s rights? Did you think of a concrete 
initiative that could strengthen feminists and women?s movements to more 
effectively address the important challenges discussed at the forum?

If so, we invite you to send us your proposal to turn ideas inspired by 
the Forum theme into action.

To be considered for Seed Grant funding, proposals must:

? emerge from experiences at the AWID 2012 Forum
? be clearly connected to Transforming  Economic Power to Advance 
Women?s Rights and Justice
? include a vision of how you see your proposal grow into something greater
? demonstrate creativity and innovation within a workable methodology 
and viable budget


? Only 2012 AWID Forum participants can apply.
? Organizations/individuals that have previously been awarded a Forum 
seed grant will not be eligible.
? In the case of proposals presented by organizations, preference will 
be given to organizations with annual budgets under USD $500,000.

In order to be considered for funding, please submit an application 
by*filling out the attached form *and returning it to 
seedgrants2013 at <mailto:seedgrants2013 at> by *September 
30th 2012*. A selection committee, made up of members of the 
Forum International Planning Committee, partners and AWID staff will 
review applications and make the final selection. Decisions regarding 
the applications will be communicated in November 2012.

Thank you once again for your participation in the 2012 AWID 
International Forum. We look forward to learning more about how you are 
turning your ideas, forum learnings and connections into action!

Warm Regards,


**Please note that AWID staff, AWID Board members and International 
Planning Committee members will not be eligible.
