Types of Grants
The TFD has three grants programs:
Grants to Taiwan’s major political parties
The Foundation normally does not provide full funding for any particular project; therefore, other sources of funding should also be sought, and these should be indicated on the application form.
In terms of scale, the Foundation is not permitted to award grants exceeding US$100,000.
The majority of grants awarded by the Foundation fall within a range between US$3,000 and US$20,000, and the average grant size is approximately US$5,000.
The Foundation’s accounting rules do not permit funding for certain types of budget items, notably capital expenditures (i.e., purchases of equipment, etc.), salaries for permanent staff, and fixed overhead costs. The general principle is that the Foundation’s funding may only be spent on direct project costs, and not for institutional support of grantees.
The strategic priority areas for the international grants program are:
Projects that leverage Taiwan’s experience in democracy and human rights development.
Projects that address the challenges to democracy and human rights raised by China, either internally or externally.
Projects that strengthen democracy and human rights in East Asia (including both Northeast and Southeast Asia).
International non-governmental organizations, academic institutions or think tanks, and other related organizations are eligible to apply.
