Premier Skills grants to Empower Women and Girls through Football

The UK Government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport, British Council and Premier League are presenting grants to help Egyptian professional or community coaches who develop new ideas to provide women and girls with access to football.

The grants fund has been designed to offer support for community projects and individual training opportunities that give women and girls access to football.

The purpose of the grant is to provide you with the support and further skills needed to enable you to reach a large number of women and girls through football projects and cascade training. The grant should be used to go above and beyond the commitment already made by attending Premier Skills courses to reach 200 young people.

You are encouraged to work with other applicants in preparing your submission to consider how you can work together and share your progress if you are successful.

Maximum Premier Skills grants available: 4000£

Applications are welcomed from
