Information on 2021 Application Cycles
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to afflict countries across Latin America, provoking tragic loss of life and serious economic and social consequences. Our grantees and partners in the region have demonstrated commitment and creativity in adjusting their work to meet this situation. However, the challenges and uncertainties remain significant.
As a foundation focused on development in Latin America, we want to ensure our resources meet the greatest needs of this moment while also prioritizing critical work in our existing program areas.
Education program (Updated June 25, 2021)

Organizations interested in submitting an application in July 2021 should read the Guidance for Education Applicants before submitting a Letter of Inquiry.
