Granting success: How to craft compelling funding applications

As highlighted in the Result Area 7 in the Global AIDS Strategy, young people need to be fully empowered and resourced to set new directions for the HIV response and unlock the progress needed to end AIDS. Their leadership is both crucial and under-utilized. One of the blockers from reaching their full potential is the lack of access to funding to further their education, attending events and conferences and implementing youth-led projects. Many funding opportunities are highly competitive, and guidance is rarely provided. Marginalized groups often do not have access to training and mentorship on how to successfully apply for funding. The Youth Hub organizes capacity-building workshops to bridge this gap and to ensure all voices are heard and seen in the HIV response. This webinar, hosted on 16 January by IAS – the International AIDS Society - provided participants with guidance on how to navigate competitive application processes and equipped participants with the tools to succeed in grant applications. Participants also received advice from former seed grantees and members of the Youth Hub Seed Grant Programme selection committee.
