We encourage* applications from
broad and diverse range of groups and organisations, around the world, but
resources are limited and we will not be able to fund every application
that we receive during this first round. Priority will go to non-profit
organisations in the global South and to those who show that they have the
partnerships and follow-up mechanisms needed to reach, influence and
mobilise others in their country.
Applications will be reviewed by a sub-committee of the Web We Want
Advisory Committee, the subcommittee will make a recommendation to the Web
We Want coordinators, whose decision is final.
Rapid Response applications will take 5 working days to process, from
receipt of your application to final decision. Surveillance Action Research

receipt of your application to final decision.
If you are successful, we’ll try to transfer the funds to you within a few
days of approving your application. Please make sure that you include
complete and correct bank details (including IBAN number) in your
