How do I know if a project is a finalist?

Who makes up the Organizing Committee?

ON FINANCING AND RECEIPT OF FUNDS
Are funds reimbursable?
No. Only in the event that an organization does not comply with the terms of the donation (deliverables) contract will funds be reimbursed.
How is funding received when a project is presented by a partnership of two or more organizations?
In the case of a partnership between two or more organizations presenting a single initiative, only one organization will act as the recipient of funds. The receiving organization will be in charge of distributing, to its partners, the funds necessary for the implementation of the project. The distribution itself is the responsibility of the applicant organizations.
Regarding financial accountability: What documents must be presented to verify expenditures made with fund resources?
Any supporting document with legal validity in the applicant’s country can be used to verify expenditures. In exceptional cases, declarations made by the organization itself may also be accepted.
