At Changing the Story, we are offering a series of grants to further explore the different ways in which ODA countries can build civil societies with, and for, young people in areas of post-conflict.

We have two main funding schemes. Each scheme is designed for projects which are led by a researcher but work in close partnership with other researchers and civil society organisations.


Applications to the Changing the Story Mobility Fund open 1 June 2019. Applications can be made by, or on behalf of, existing CTS grantees currently based in the Global South only. Scroll down for more information.

ECR-led grants of £15,000 – £30,000 (duration 6-12 months)

Applications to apply for our ECR-led grants closed in December 2018. Eleven projects were successfully awarded funding.

Large grants of £50,000-£100,000 (duration 12 months)

Our Large grants scheme is suitable for researchers of all levels.<br />
