Call for Applications: The Intercultural Achievement Award (IAA) 2022

The Intercultural Achievement Award (IAA) is a key project for intercultural dialogue of the Austrian Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs. Launched in 2014 it aims at identifying and awarding innovative and best practice projects in the field of intercultural dialogue.

Since 2007, the Task Force “Dialogue of Cultures” supports partner organisations with the implementation of intercultural and interreligious projects and designs, finances and implements initiatives itself. With these projects, the Task Force takes up priorities set by the Federal Minister for European and International Affairs and the Federal Government.

Applications can only be made by non-governmental organisations (including associations, foundations, charitable educational institutions, religious organisations and commercial organisations) whose projects mainly focus on intercultural and interreligious dialogue. Government, science, research or international institutions are excluded from admission.

Dialogue is a multifaceted concept. Thematic priorities according to the Austrian strategic focus facilitate compatibility of the submitted projects. Therefore, the intercultural projects applying for the IAA must be active in at least one of the following areas:

- Art/Culture
- Youth
- Human Rights
- Global Citizenship Education
- Integration
- Gender Equality

Informations in german can be found here.

A detailed online application form with guiding questions can be found here. All questions must be answered in English in a clear and precise manner (clarity), be structured (detail and focus) and should convince the reader of the project purpose and objectives (persuasiveness).
