DBS Foundation is offering $3 million in grants for the 2021 cycle of its Social Entreprise (SE) Grant Programme - its largest sum to date and more than double the amount from the year before.
The programme, now in its seventh year, aims to grow and scale early-stage SEs. Successful applicants will be awarded grant funding of up to $250,000 each. In addition, successful applicants from the bank’s key markets (Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, India and Indonesia) are able to access support measures from both DBS Bank and DBS Foundation such as capacity-building programmes, networking and publicity opportunities.
Applications for the 2021 grant cycle are open until June 15, with the winning applicants to be selected towards the end of the year. Over 800 applications were submitted for the 2020 cycle.
