Programs

LGBTI Global Small Grants Program

The Williams Institute’s Global LGBTI Small Grants Program is designed to encourage new empirical research focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex populations in the Global South (Latin America, Caribbean, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East/North Africa, Asia, Pacific Islands) as well as amplify voices of researchers from those regions. The program also aims to strengthen research capacity among participants by supporting networking and knowledge exchange (including a colloquium to present research findings) and providing mentorship, where needed, from Williams Institute scholars.

We are no longer accepting proposals for the 2021 Global LGBTI Small Grants Program. Please check back in January 2022 to apply for the next grant cycle.

The Program is designed to support work that will have a direct impact on law and policy.
