Apply now for the EIL Seed Fund – Autumn Round

Open until 1st November 2019!

EIL Intercultural Learning is an Irish not for profit organisation that provides intercultural learning opportunities through study abroad, youth leadership, language training, travel awards, group educational programmes, and other cultural immersion activities for over 2,500 people each year.


At EIL we believe that on a long-term basis, the most effective way in which returned volunteers can truly make a difference is to educate others about global justice, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the lives of people in the Global South.


The EIL Seed Fund exists to assist returned volunteers and change-makers to overcome barriers by providing successful applicants with funding, guidance and support to implement their own awareness-raising projects in Ireland. You can apply to the Seed Fund as individuals or as part of a group.


Up to €100 is available for individual projects and up to €200 for group projects. Please note that the projects can only be funded if they take place in Ireland and the project has not yet taken place.


You can apply to the Seed Fund as an individual or as part of a group. Both application forms are available on the EIL website:
