Please find below Counterpart International’s Internet Governance/Internet Freedom project’s Request for Applications (RFA) concerning small advocacy and research projects for Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe.  If you have a great idea for a civil society led research and/or advocacy project (Up to $24,999) which advances a human rights based approach to internet governance, we’d be interested in reviewing a proposal.  In general, we’re interested in projects that demonstrate a commitment to keeping the internet a vibrant and open democratic space for free expression, access to information, and privacy.  Projects should be relevant to the current country context addressing appropriate legislative, regulatory, or legal threats to online rights.  Activities should be broad based and inclusive of marginalized groups, the media, civil society, the private sector, and government entities.  Applications that are research focused (e.g. white paper legislative analysis) should include a plan to disseminate and advocate for the research findings.  Projects may also include capacity building activities to expand advocacy skills for civil society.

Proposal applications are due Friday, January 4th at 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time and should be submitted to with “CPI Project RFA #19-1 (Country Name)” in the subject line.  Each project application must include:

  • A completed application template
  • A budget divided by milestone payments
  • A pre-award questionnaire (with accompanying requested documents)

Please see attached for details.
