The Varkey Foundation Challenge Fund provides grants to partner organisations that offer innovative solutions in support of our mission. The Challenge Fund seeks to support a small number of early-stage initiatives in their endeavours, with individual grants of up to $50,000 available to help build the capacity of teachers and to strengthen the status of the teaching profession.      

Over the next five years the Varkey Foundation commits to catalysing a global, sustainable change in the way teachers are trained, treated and perceived. Our catalytic partnerships with ambitious, forward-thinking organisations are key to progress.

Applications for next year have now closed and will re-open in October 2017.
