The World Justice Project (WJP) is calling for applications for the World Justice Challenge – a seed grant competition to strengthen the rule of law.
This is an open competition designed to incubate practical, on-the-ground programs that advance the rule of law. Selected programs will be supported by:
Modest seed grants—the typical size of a seed grant is $15,000 to $25,000
Connections to others in the WJP’s global network
Increased visibility through media and communications support
The WJP believes that everyone is a stakeholder in the rule of law, and that a multidisciplinary approach is essential to creating long-lasting change.
How It Works
Stage 1: Identify an area for improvement. Using the WJP Rule of Law Index, individuals can identify areas where the rule of law needs improvement in the country in which they live or work.
Stage 2: Create an initiative to improve the rule of law. Individuals begin to create ideas to address the challenge. This process may be done with individuals from different sectors or countries in order to encourage diverse perspectives, or it may be created independently. A complete proposal is then submitted to the WJP for consideration for incubation support.
Stage 3: WJP selects initiatives to receive support. Once all proposals are received, a selection process begins using established criteria. Grantees are chosen by a Selection Panel which changes each year.
Stage 4: WJP provides support to selected initiatives. Once an initiative is selected, the WJP works with the program implementers to identify where support is most needed to make the initiative successful.
The World Justice Challenge is open to all individuals, organizations, and entities from any country.
