Overview: Each year, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) makes more than 2,000 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad that are working to advance democratic goals and strengthen democratic institutions in more than 100 countries. NED encourages applications from organizations working in diverse environments, including newly established democracies, semi-authoritarian countries, highly repressive societies, and countries undergoing democratic transitions.

  • Strengthen democratic ideas and values
  • Promote accountability and transparency
  • Strengthen civil society organizations
  • Strengthen democratic political processes and institutions
  • Promote civic education
