Due to excessive number of applications received, the project Comprehensive Support to Human Rights Defenders in Turkey decided to close the call for applications for the institutional support grants to human rights defenders in Turkey. ProtectDefenders.eu Secretariat will not accept institutional support grant applications received any later than 4 May 2020, 17:00 o’clock CET.
The project received a great interest in its grants program. We are thankful to every human rights defender organisation that reached out to the project seeking support to continue and extend their crucial human rights work in Turkey.
Protection Grants Programme will continue to accept applications as usual until the official end date of the project, 31 January 2022. For requests to improve the security and protection of individual human rights defenders and organisations, please apply directly to Front Line Defenders, who manages the protection grants of the project.
