The British Embassy Yerevan has now opened its call for project bids under the FCO’s Programme Fund. We are looking for the projects that can be carried out during the financial year 2017/18 and 2018/19. The Embassy is interested in supporting innovative proposals that work in any of the following themes:

- Support to the Republic of Armenia in strengthening institutional and civil society capacity in the fight against corruption. More information can be found below
Projects must have a clear purpose supported by achievable and measurable outputs (e.g. events and reports) and outcomes (change that is beyond the control of the project implementer) and should deliver value for money (VfM). Please keep proposals as concise as possible and present the purpose of the project as the benefit which you expect to result from the project activities.
Successful bids must demonstrate strong strategic relevance to the areas of programme focus and have a clear focus on delivering change and sustainability. Project impact should last beyond the life of the project itself. Proposals should take into consideration the gender sensitivity, aimed to complete 85% of annual funding allocation by the end of November 2017 and November 2018.
