UNHCR NGO Innovation Award 2022

The UNHCR NGO Innovation Award 2022 is now accepting applications.

UNHCR NGO Innovation Award 2022

The award recognizes the efforts and successes of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that have established innovative ways to the protection and deliver services to refugees and other UNHCR-affected people.

In an era of increased uncertainty and upheaval, UNHCR hopes to uncover and reward innovative and creative ways that may result in greater protection and service delivery to the people they serve, as well as magnify acts of solidarity and creativity.

Women-led and girl-led organizations (WLOs) working with or assisting refugees, internally displaced individuals, returnees, stateless people, and host communities will be the focus of the 2022 Award.

The Award will give priority to groups founded or headed by refugees and other UNHCR-designated individuals, but it will also be accessible to other community-based women-led organizations working in forced displacement situations.

This emphasis on women-led organizations aims to recognize organizations with strong organizational values, beliefs, and commitments to gender equality and responsibility to women and girls, as well as those that elevate women to leadership roles.


  • Seven (7) winning organizations will receive $15,000 each, one from each of UNHCR’s areas, to support their innovative work aimed at ensuring and improving gender equality and accountability for women and girls.
