The BEARR Trust Small Grants Scheme 2011

The BEARR Small Grants Scheme 2011 will pick up the theme of the 2010
Annual Conference, that of young people in our region in trouble or liable
to be in trouble with the law.

The Scheme has two segments:
Helping young people involved with the law or emerging from detention
centres to reintegrate into society, in Russia or Kazakhstan.

B. Helping young people involved with the law or emerging from detention
centres to reintegrate into society in the countries of the South Caucasus
(Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan) or other countries in Central Asia
(Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan).

What are the aims and criteria of the Scheme?

The 2011 Small Grants Scheme aims to support activities that involve one
or more of the following:

· Encourage sharing of experience and learning among NGOs with
relevant aims

· Disseminate good practice more widely

· Facilitate cooperation with and/or coordination among NGOs and
other organisations working with relevant groups

· Improve awareness, influence policy, or engage public institutions
in addressing the relevant issues

· Propose other, imaginative, ways of achieving the Scheme’s aims

Who can apply?

European NGOs active in the region and/or NGOs from the countries covered
by the scheme. Priority will be given to projects involving
partnerships.

How much money is available?

The BEARR Trust expects to have available about $20 000 for A and 7000
Euros for B. Grants may be disbursed in instalments or as one-off grants.
The Trust will probably wish to support more than one initiative under
each segment, so proposals for smaller amounts are encouraged. Preference
will be given to projects which are also funded from other sources and in
which the BEARR grant does not exceed 50% of the overall cost.

How does an organisation apply for a grant under the scheme?

Send an application to The BEARR Trust by 15 February 2011. The
application, which must be in English and have the costings in dollars for
A and euros for B (except UK NGOs, which should use sterling), should be
sent by email to info@nullbearr.org

What information is required in the application?

The application should be not more than 2 pages of A4. It should include
information on:

· The NGO applying for a grant, its address including email,

its mission and objectives

· Any partner organisation, its mission and objectives

· Objectives, short and long term, of the project proposed, and a
brief description of the activities to be supported

· Why the NGO needs a grant from The BEARR Trust, what it will be
used for, and how it meets the criteria for the 2011 Small Grant Scheme,
set out above

· The proposed total project budget, showing separately the amount
requested from BEARR and the contributions to be made by the applicant NGO
and other sponsors

What happens after an application is received by the BEARR Trust?

The Trust will acknowledge applications as they are received. The Trust
will contact applicants for any further information or clarification it
needs. Trustees will review shortlisted proposals at their meeting in
April. The Trust will announce which proposals have been successful soon
thereafter.

Part A of The BEARR Trust Small Grants Scheme 2011 is funded by a
grant from the Moscow Office of the law firm Baker Botts.
