ASAP is proud to manage a portfolio of awards. Each fund we are responsible for has a specific theme or focus. We are immensely grateful to our partners and sponsors for their support, without them this important strand of our work would not be possible.

ASAP has run a number awards over the years and made the expansion of this area of our work a strategic priority.
