We are super excited and thrilled to share the results of our fourth grant cycle!#FRIDACycle2015 was our biggest grant cycle yet with proposals pouring in from young feminist groups from all over the Global South region. We received over 900 applications in seven languages (English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese and Russian) from over 100 countries!
We are incredibly thankful to everyone from the FRIDA family who helped make this year’s grant cycle possible: advisors, staff, volunteers, translators, references, donors and all the young feminist activists who applied whose work inspires us.
Together with our advisory committee and our staff, we shortlisted a total of 291 applications that fit our funding criteria. In keeping with our participatory grantmaking model, shortlisted applicants voted for what they thought were the best proposals from their respective regions.
Based on the proposals that received maximum votes, we are proud to award new grants to 38 groups! In addition, we renewed 33 of our current partners, making a total of 71 groups supported by FRIDA!

We hope you enjoy reading more about these fierce feminist groups as much as we did. And we encourage you to show your support. Tell us who you liked. Share with your friends and peers about the group that inspired you the most. Donate and be a part of this funding movement so that more groups can be supported in the years to come!
