About this grant

The overall goal of the Foundation’s support to the Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence is to consolidate Serbia’s democratic transformation and to facilitate accession to the European Union and integration into Euro-Atlantic structures. Established in November 2003, the fund provides training and networking opportunities to existing and emerging political and civic leadership in Serbia through a variety of educational seminars, lectures, and other events. In 2005-2006, approximately 70 representatives from government, political parties, and civil society participated in the fund’s yearlong seminar series. The fund is based in Belgrade and is networked with other similar institutions in Eastern Europe.
