Refugee-led Innovation Fund

The Refugee-led Innovation Fund is currently open to applications from refugee-led organizations. Applications close 30 June 2023 at 23:59. UNHCR colleagues seeking support for innovative ideas should explore our Funds focusing on data, digital, and environment and climate action innovation.

Who can apply

The Fund supports innovation by all organizations led by people with lived experience of forced displacement, including refugees, asylum-seekers, the internally displaced, returnees, and stateless people.

Applicants are asked to apply as a team, usually as part of an existing organization. The Fund accepts applications from both registered and unregistered organizations. Additional attention will be given to ensuring organizations led by LGBTIQ+ persons, women, people with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups receive support and encouragement to apply to the Fund.
