The Open Society Institute (“OSI”) and Soros foundations network (“Network”) website is designed to provide easy access to OSI and network news, articles, publications, events, grant information, and more. (OSI serves as the hub of the Network, a group of autonomous foundations and organizations in over fifty countries.) The site is primarily organized around "initiatives," which are formal efforts set forth by OSI and the Network to support areas of work on a regional or Network-wide basis. Initiatives include grantmaking and operating programs, as well as fellowships and scholarships, and they are organized in the site by "issue" and "region." Initiatives can be accessed by pulldowns at the bottom of every page. For more information, please see the site map
OSI-New York, OSI-Budapest, OSF-London, OSI-Paris and OSI-Brussels are separate organizations that operate independently yet cooperate informally with each other. This website, a joint presentation, is intended to promote each organization’s interests.
