The Going Global Partnerships Programme is inviting applications to Gender Equality PartnershipsGrants to support higher education institutions and sector bodies to progress gender equality – building on the potential of sector to influence wider society.  

The aim of this Grant is to help progress gender equality within higher and further education, and to build on the potential of sector to influence wider society.

The Gender Equality Partnerships expects to support 12 projects in participating countries of between £20,000 and £25,000 in value each, for a 12-month period, starting from January 2023. The fund will prioritisepartnerships that focus on one or more of the priority themes that are globally relevant:

  • Prevention of violence against women and girls with a particular focus on higher and further education institutions as safe spaces for women
  • Addressing women`s underrepresentation in higher and further education leadership
  • Enabling access and tackling subject segregation, particularly in the area of STEM (including encouraging STEM-related learning)
  • Strengthening pathways into employment for women graduates from further and higher education

Applicants are encouraged to check the “Guide to addressing gender equality” document when discussing and designing the joint proposal.
