In a first step, the Allianz Foundation team reviews your project outline. If your project meets our thematic priorities and criteria, we will send you further documents for the complete application. Otherwise, you will receive a negative response.
In a second step, your application will be checked by the Foundation's team for formal completeness and correctness. Subsequently, it is evaluated by an expert jury according to the content criteria of our work. The jury selects the most convincing projects in its meeting. At its meeting in the summer, the Board of Trustees then approves the funding for the proposed projects.
The deadline for submitting project outlines is 15 February (23:59h CET). We aim to give feedback within two weeks. However, especially around the deadline of 15 February, our assessment may take longer. Please refrain from inquiries during this time.
If the project outline is approved, we will send you further documents for the complete application. Requested applications can be submitted until 30 April. An application consists of a financial plan (template here) and a detailed project description including a schedule (max. 10 pages). The application should be submitted as a PDF document and should not exceed 10 MB in size. The financial plan must be submitted separately as an open Excel file. After receipt of the full proposal and the selection process of the expert jury, the Foundation's Board of Trustees usually meets at the end of June/beginning of July. Immediately afterwards we will inform you about their decision.
