World Justice Challenge( A Seed Grant competition to strengthen the rule of law)

Application Deadline: January 15 2013

The World Justice Challenge is an open competition designed to incubate practical, on-the-ground programs that advance the rule of law. The WJP believes that everyone is a stakeholder in the rule of law, and that a multidisciplinary approach is essential to creating long-lasting change.

Selected programs will be supported by:

  • Modest seed grants—the typical size of a seed grant is $15,000 to $25,000
  • Connections to others in the WJP’s global network
  • Increased visibility through media and communications support

How It Works

Stage 1Identify an area for improvement. Using the WJP Rule of Law Index, individuals can identify areas where the rule of law needs improvement in the country in which they live or work.
Stage 2Create an initiative to improve the rule of law. Individuals begin to create ideas to address the challenge.

Stage 3
WJP selects initiatives to receive support. Once all proposals are received, a selection process begins using established criteria.
Stage 4WJP provides support to selected initiatives. Once an initiative is selected, the WJP works with the program implementers to identify where support is most needed to make the initiative successful.
