Doria Feminist Fund Call for Applications 2023 now Open

The Doria Feminist Fund seeks to create a feminist ecosystem where the new generation of feminist movement in the MENA region has access to more and better funding and resources which enables the development and sustainability of its activism to advance the rights, wellbeing and security of all women & LGBTQ+ individuals and groups.

The Core Funding program supports essentially but not exclusively emerging/new feminist groups through a one-time, fully-flexible core grant of up to $10,000 to jumpstart their work and support them in their establishment phase/early years.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Registered or unregistered feminist groups.
  • Have not received previous funding from the Doria Feminist Fund.
  • Based in a MENA country.
  • No age limit.
  • People ascribing to all genders are encouraged to apply.

Knowledge Production Funds

Feminist groups and engaged scholars can choose to write or translate papers/books to Arabic, convene feminist-themed meetings, publish educational material (books, magazines, comics, etc.), create podcasts, produce photo essays or utilize any other creative media to present their work. The possibilities are endless.

This grant provides the opportunity and support needed for feminists to experiment with diverse media and to welcome new tools into their work as they create spaces for learning and knowledge exchange within their movements. It also invites feminist activists, groups and scholars to join the conversation on feminism and gender in the region, but finally on their own terms and in ways that privilege their knowledge, narratives and experiences.

In the spirit of knowledge sharing and exchange, works produced by grantee-partners as part of the knowledge production program will be openly shared with the public under the [Creative Commons Attribution CC BY license] and will remain the ownership of their creators.
