The deadline for submitting IHRA Grant abstracts was 29 September.

The IHRA Grant Program co-funds innovative, relevant, and impactful projects with a clear international component that:

  • Safeguard the record of the Holocaust and the genocide of the Roma (Program 1), or
  • Counter distortion (Program 2)

Projects that receive IHRA funding also have access to the wealth of IHRA expertise, tools, and guidance which have been developed since the IHRA’s establishment in 1998.

Organizations from anywhere in the world can apply. However, given the Russian aggression against Ukraine, the IHRA Grant Program encourages institutions working in and around Ukraine to apply for funding so they can continue their efforts during this difficult time, and to lay the foundation for remembrance of the Holocaust during Ukraine’s recovery process and beyond.

We are also relaunching the Professor Yehuda Bauer Grant. This grant will award funding in the amount of €50,000 to one project from anywhere in the world which aims to undertake new and significant research on the Holocaust and antisemitism, with no co-funding required.

Please get in touch with Program Officer Joe Silverman ( for further information and explore former IHRA Grant Projects further below.

How is the IHRA Grant Program funded?

The IHRA Grant Program is funded with annual contributions from each of the IHRA's Member Countries.

How much funding is available for my organization's project?

The IHRA Grant Program provides a maximum of 50,000 EUR per project per year of funding, and a minimum of 15,000 EUR per project per year of funding. At least 50% of the total budget for the project is to be covered by sources other than the IHRA. Your co-funder may be your formal project partner but does not need to be – further details found in the Grant Guidelines Document.

What is the maximum amount of funding my organization's project can receive?

The maximum amount of funding we offer per year is 50,000 EUR and the minimum amount of funding per year is 15,000 EUR. Therefore, the maximum amount of funding you could receive in total is 100,000 EUR for a two year project. The minimum amount of funding you could receive would be 15,000 EUR for a one year project.

What if my organization does not yet have a co-funder to provide the other 50% of the funding?

If, at the time of applying, confirmation from other funding sources has not yet been received, the applicant should list all potential co-funders that have been contacted. Required co-funding must be procured by December 2024 following the grant notification. The applicant must furnish proof that other donors have committed themselves to co-funding or that co-funding will be provided from other sources to receive the initial installment of 70% of the annual allocation.

What if my project does not have an international element to it?

Every IHRA-funded project must take an international approach. Projects should bring together target groups and project partners from at least two different countries.

Can my formal project partner be from the same country as where my organization is based?

No, you must find at least one formal project partner who is based in a different country than your own.

I am an independent researcher. Can I apply for the Yehuda Bauer Grant?

The IHRA does not fund individual research or monographs. We do, however, fund joint research projects. Please apply through your research consortium, institution, or university.
