Overview

CRDF Global is pleased to announce a grant opportunity to support counter-disinformation initiatives that respond to malign influence campaigns that discredit longstanding nonproliferation norms and institutions in Ukraine. Grants are a one-time, six-month award of up to $5,000 USD. Funding will support efforts to identify Russian disinformation operations including websites, networked accounts on social media platforms, hosting services, and advertising agencies that enable purveyors of Russian disinformation to operate and generate revenue. Grants may also support the development of technical solutions for identifying and countering Russian disinformation operations.

Eligibility

  • Grants will be issued to individuals or teams of individuals and institutional indirect costs will not be permitted. Institutional grants may be considered in rare cases with appropriate justification.
  • Grant recipients must be nationals of Ukraine.
