What are Mini-Projects?

A Mini-Project is a BIRD project whose budget is limited to $400,000.

Therefore, the grant is a maximum of $200,000, or 50% of actual project costs, whichever is less.

Submission of an Executive Summary and a Project Proposal is required just as with a full-scale project.

A Mini-Project is usually evaluated in an accelerated process and hence it may be decided upon more quickly than a full scale project. A Mini Project is not a feasibility study prior to a full scale project. It has to end with a marketable product.
