Call for Proposals: Small Scale Projects (SSPs) 2023 in Thailand and Laos

We are pleased to launch a call for proposals for Small Scale Projects (SSPs) for the year 2023 directly managed by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Bangkok.


The projects can focus on various sectors – for example environment, agriculture, health, education, social services etc. All projects should be based on the principle of sustainability - that is sustaining the benefits for the long term without an additional external support.



A project can be funded with a budget from 200 000 CZK (approx. 8 000 USD) to 500 000 CZK (approx. 20 000 USD) maximum. Co-funding from the applicant or other sources is welcome. Total sum of personal and travel costs must not exceed 25% of total SSP budget. Maximum SSP duration is from signing of the Contract (approx. March) to October, i.e. 8-9 months in total.



Only organizations with legal capacity in Thailand or Laos can submit an SSP proposal, including:

  1. local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations,
  2. local academic institutions working on local projects,
  3. international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities,
  4. municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects.

The majority of SSP funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including non-governmental organizations) and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations can be eligible for a contribution, provided that they are working with local partners and on local projects. Similarly, municipal, regional or national government institutions may receive SSP funding provided that their projects are essentially local in nature.



All proposals should be delivered to the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Bangkok BOTH in electronic form (editable Excel format file AND scanned .pdf or .jpg file with a signature, to emails: bangkok@embassy.mzv.cz and Michal_Sveda@mzv.cz), AND paper form to the address:


Michal Sveda

Embassy of the Czech Republic

71/6 Ruam Rudee Soi 2, Ploenchit Rd.

The proposals must contain:


  1. completed Identification Form with stamp and signature (see attachment),
  2. copy of the Document proving the Applicant’s legal capacity,
  3. copy of the Authorization of the signed person to act on the Applicant’s behalf.


All documentation must be either in English or an English translation must be attached.



  1. Interested entities should submit their proposals to the Embassy of the Czech Republic no later than October 17, 2022 for electronic submissions and no later than October 24, 2022 for paper submissions. Please note that both electronic and paper versions of the submission are required. These deadlines are final and cannot be extended due to the necessary following procedural steps!!! So please, plan ahead.
  2. The assessment of the proposals will take several months and should be completed in January 2023.
  3. Successful applicants should sign a contract for implementation of the project with the Embassy of the Czech Republic no later than March 15, 2023.
  4. All SSP activities should be finished no later than October 31, 2023. However, due to the fact that it is necessary to finish all the paperwork and inspection/monitoring of project results, it is recommended that all project activities are finished by October 15 at the latest.
  5. Successful applicants must submit a Final Report and all relevant financial documents to the Embassy of the Czech Republic as soon as possible after the SSP conclusion, not later than November 20, 2023.

Please download and use the attached Identification Form below in order to submit your proposal. Only proposals duly prepared and submitted in this form and in line with these instructions will be admitted for evaluation. Project calculations in terms of financial requirements should be filled in using either USD, EUR, or THB as project currencies in order to facilitate conversion to CZK. Please, do not fill in the financial requirements in CZK, as this will be added later.


Please bear in mind that currency fluctuations need to be taken into account. Contracts for awarded SSPs will be quoted in CZK. The approved CZK amount is final and cannot be changed. It is thus necessary to take this into account during the project and budget preparation and allocation in the Identification Form.


Please make sure all the documents are in English or the translation to English is attached. The final assessment is made in Prague and there is no capacity to work in Thai or Lao languages.


Should you have any questions regarding this call for proposals, please send them to the email: Michal_Sveda@mzv.cz


We are looking forward to your proposals.
