Applying for a Schengen Visa

Depending on the passport that you hold, you may need to apply for a Schengen visa through a Portuguese consulate or visa center in your country of residence. To start the process:

  1. Determine if you need to apply for a Schengen visa to travel to Portugal;
  2. Review the documents you will need for your visa application; and
  3. Request a visa appointment through the local consulate or embassy processing visas to visit Portugal.

The Team CommUNITY staff is here to help you through the visa application process and can provide you with an official letter of invitation to the Global Gathering and other visa support. Contact us at for more information.

Applying for the Equity Fund

The Equity Fund supports participants from historically low-resourced, under-represented communities who truly cannot attend the Global Gathering otherwise. The fund is intended for folks that truly have no other option and ensures that these voices are present in important strategic conversations. Before applying to the Equity Fund, we encourage all individuals to consider alternative forms of funding, such as seeking support from your partners and/or employers, if those options are available to you.

  1. Fill out your application on the Global Gathering platform, or log into your Global Gathering account if you have already submitted an application.
  2. Navigate to the main dashboard. You will automatically be directed to the dashboard once you submit your application, however you can always select the Team CommUNITY logo in the platform header to return to the dashboard.
  3. Select Request Equity Fund Support and fill out the Equity Fund request form.

Don’t know if you need Equity Fund support yet? You can make an Equity Fund request at a later date by logging into the platform and viewing your dashboard. Deadline to apply: April 15. Please remember to investigate alternative forms of funding available to you before you submit a request to the Equity Fund.
