Call 7

May be the last opportunity to apply for a surface study grant. If you have a great project that needs some surface study work then now is the time to apply. Also, an EOI is NOT needed for a surface study application but a pre-EOI survey is absolutely required so you can obtain the application forms.

 

Important information

All grant applicants, whether for surface study or confirmation drilling grants must complete the pre-EOI survey. It is the only way that the Fund Manager can know that you intend to apply and then, when appropriate, send you the application information needed.

 

 

Good News!

With Call 7, certain kinds of expansion projects can now apply for drilling grants. There are restrictions so please consult the latest version of the Developers’ Manual, v25.0.

 

 

Know Your Client (KYC)

The GDF follows the spirit and intent of the World Bank Group and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Please remember that all applicants must complete an integrity questionnaire documenting certain aspects of their businesses and beneficial owners at the time of both the EOI and the CFP. The purpose of KYC is to better understand the structure of the applicant, the beneficial owners, and other material information that may impact the applicant’s submission. The form and questions are identical for both the EOI and the CFP and can be found in the Developers’ Manual and can be found in the Developers’ Manual v25.0 which can be downloaded here.
