The Flowers Fund invites applications to support innovation and mentorship in human rights education (HRE) in the United States

In November of 2017, HRE USA established the Flowers Fund in honor of HRE USA founding member, Nancy Flowers

Every year, the Flowers Fund provides small grants to support innovation and mentorship in human rights education (HRE) in the United States. The fund aims to encourage new philosophic and theoretical thinking, new pedagogies, and new outreach methods for HRE, as well as emerging leadership in the field.

The Flowers Fund will consider applications in areas such as research in human rights education, travel to attend HRE conferences, encouragement of emerging leadership, and innovative projects that expand the scope and understanding of HRE and/or extend the audience for HRE.

Grants of up to $1000 will be made for projects to individuals and organizations that are members of HRE USA.  The project should have direct relevance to human rights education in the United States and be completed during the upcoming Academic year.

For more information on eligibility guidelines, please read the Flowers Fund Grant Guidelines.  

The deadline for the 2022-23 Flowers Fund Grant Applications is September 15, 2022. Grant Application form is available here.
