Dear Michael

I can’t see any Country from Europe eligible to apply. Macedonia is not on the list too

Hi @zbikovski, it does not seem that many European countries are eligible for this grant opportunity - I believe the Commonwealth Foundation focuses on countries with historical ties to the United Kingdom, although I am not certain here. Thanks!
