Small Grants and Fellowships 2010, Available for Work on Toxicity, Waste and Pollution in India

Source:, Date: , 2010

Environmental Equity and Justice Partnership (EEJP) announces the launch of second phase of its grant program. Over next three years the program will work towards ‘securing environmental justice, especially for poor and the marginalized who are often expected to bear more than their share of environmental burdens’.

Towards the attainment of this larger goal, EEJP strives to catalyse grassroots initiatives, trigger new imagination and perspectives, encourage crossover linkages, and provide greater opportunities to connect to environmental thinking. This it seeks to accomplish through its two components -- Environmental Small Grants (for organisations) and Environmental Fellowship (for individuals)

The focus of the current program is on cross cutting environmental issues around Toxicity, Waste and Pollution in India. Any activity that falls within the program focus and is strategic; action-oriented; builds public involvement and support; focuses on root causes of the issue; and most important, has a clear sustainability plan; is eligible for support under EEJP.

EEJP is currently inviting applications. For details on eligibility, application process, timeline, and other important aspects under each of the components are available on EEJP website at

The deadline for submitting Concept Note (in prescribed) format) is 28 Feb 2010. All program or process related queries may be addressed to: EEJP Coordinator at
