Frequency of AKF Grant Funding Rounds

Generally, the AKF Secretariat will conduct one major grant round each financial year, advertised on the AKF website. Applications will be received February-April for projects in the following financial year. Only if further funding becomes available, then a subsequent 'intercessional' grant round may be held within the financial year, also advertised on the AKF website.
