IWI is a nonprofit social association of women from around the world living in Istanbul. We are not a foundation or charitable organization.
However, Social Responsibility is important to our members. So much so that every year in the Spring, IWI launches a Call for Applications for the Annual Grant Process. Prospective applicants for grant funding are required to fill out a detailed project proposal following a form to be downloaded above.
