Illiberalism Grant Application

The world is witnessing an authoritarian populist surge. Our challenge is not only to promote free markets, but also to counter a global movement led by people who actively reject the ideas of liberty.

Atlas Network invites its partners to participate in the Illiberalism Grant Program. This program is designed to help our partners who are working to combat the new authoritarianism and stop the rise of anti-liberal sentiment.

Successful proposals will be those that demonstrate sophisticated, wide-reaching strategies to counter anti-liberal ideas with liberal principles of tolerance, openness, free trade, and the rule of law. 

 Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered.

Atlas Network is not endowed and accepts no government funding, so its capacity to give is restricted by its own fundraising success. Support is typically awarded in amounts less than $10,000, and rarely exceeds $20,000. 

DEADLINES: Atlas offers four annual submission periods for applicants:

First Grant Submission Period  - Deadline is March 1, 2017. Decisions will be made by March 30 and the organizations will be notified of the final decision within two weeks.

Second Grant Submission Period  - Deadline is June 1, 2017. Decisions will be made by June 30 and the organizations will be notified of the final decision within two weeks.

Fourth Grant Submission Period  - Deadline is December 1, 2017. Decisions will be made by December 30 and the organizations will be notified of the final decision within two weeks.
