The Resilience Fund Fellowship: Call For Application 2020

The Resilience Fellowship has been launched to build a platform for cross-sectoral, global, and interdisciplinary collaboration between civil society actors, human-rights activists, journalists, artists, scholars, policy makers, grassroots community leaders, and others working to counter the effects of organized crime.

The Fellowship will provide support and opportunities to a cohort of individuals from around the world. Each year a chosen theme will focus on a global issue, on which Resilience Fellows will collaborate on finding new perspectives and responses, drawn from their diverse – yet shared - experiences.


    The Fellowship welcomes applications from individuals of any gender, ethnicity, age, religion, or any other defining factor, who work in communities affected by organized crime.
  • Each fellow will receive $15,000 to be executed with no other limitation than the principles of professionalism, integrity and transparency, the proposal presentedin the application form, the terms and conditions of the Fellowship agreement, and the implementation of collaborative actions with other fellows.

Selection criteria

  • Participants should be from countries disproportionately affected by organized crime, and/or from developing countries.
  • Participants should ideally work closely within communities severely affected by disappearances related to organized crime, or have strong ties within them, and should have ongoing or established projects or engagement.
  • Participants should be able to demonstrate how the funding and support will be used.
  • Participants who have direct experience in their communities’ issues, related to the annual theme, are particularly encouraged to apply.
  • Participants must be fluent in at least one of the three languages: Spanish, English and French.
  • The prior work of participants should demonstrate a commitment to the ethics and values of the Resilience Fund.
