In order to determine whether a proposed project or program fits within NII priorities, organizations must first complete a brief online inquiry, which will be reviewed by NII staff. Upon review, NII will inform applicants whether or not they will be invited to submit a full proposal.
Applying for funding is a highly competitive process. We expect to receive hundreds of inquiries competing for approximately $3.5 million annually, which will support grants, events, research and a range of other NII activities.
Funding priority will be given to applicants who meet multiple criteria.
Please note, NII does not fund:
- Direct grants to individuals
- Capital projects, equipment purchases or endowment funds
- Political activities or activities to influence specific legislation
Additionally, applicants must be a non-profit or public institution to receive funding.*
We endeavor to respond to applicants in a timely manner and to treat all inquiries with respect and careful attention.
