I meet the criteria set out in the guidelines and am therefore eligible for a gender equality grant. How do I apply for such a grant?

The gender equality grant does not have to be applied for, neither in the project application nor via a supplementary grant during the running time of the project (except for fellowships). The costs for the gender equality grant are covered by a deficit guarantee. If project funds are still available, they may be used to finance the gender equality grant. Otherwise, a compensatory payment may be initiated in the final financial report, provided that reference is made to the corresponding receipts.
