The DICE Fund will give £2 million to support the growth of creative and social enterprise in Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, South Africa and the UK.
Two types of grants are awarded through the DICE Fund
- Scoping and Business Development Grants
- Collaboration Grants
Grants are designed to foster new partnerships, and enhance existing partnerships, between UK enterprises and sector support organisations (such as impact hubs, accelerators and universities) and counterparts in the overseas DICE countries.
The partners will draw on the grants to co-design and co-deliver interventions that support the development of creative and social enterprises that specifically focus on one or more of the following: empowering women and girls, fostering youth employment, and supporting people with disabilities and other marginalised groups.
How to apply
There will be two calls for applications for Collaboration Grants
- 1 September – 16 November 2018
- 1 October 2018 – 8 February 2019
The DICE Fund is part of a wider two year programme, set up to tackle entrenched issues of unemployment and unequal economic growth in five emerging economies and the UK. Please focus your proposals at the level of institutions (such as universities or sector support bodies) or enterprises rather than at a policy level.
You can submit your application via this portal.
Please note: the Scoping and Business Development Grant application process is now closed.
