The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Grand Challenges Explorations Round 9 which offers grants ranging from $100,000 to $1 million for innovative ideas and projects is open to accepting applications for the new topic: “Aid is Working: Tell the World.”

As stories of corruption and waste of money in international aid and development sector are prevalent everywhere, it is making people in developed countries believe that aid is not solving the problems of poor and developing countries. Although such a context exists, it is also true that aid has made some difference to the lives of the beneficiaries and it is important to continue maintaining the support for it. To increase the support of the people for aid programs, this Challenge is to support such projects that will innovatively gather stories of success showing that aid is working for the poor.

In partnership with the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, the Grand Challenges Explorations Round 9 seeks ideas on new approaches to communications that motivate the public in the wealthy countries of the world to change their minds about aid, and take actions to demonstrate their support.

It is seeking game-changing ideas that have never been imagined on their own but could revolutionize the field. Some examples (but not limited to) are given below:

  • New ways to collect and share first-person stories from those impacted by aid in the developing world;
  • Data collection and visualization that demonstrates the “how” and “what” of aid, e.g. where funding goes and how it impacts people and communities; money spent on development relative to other areas; measurable progress against the Millennium Development Goals. (The foundation is particularly interested in MDGs 1,4,5,and 6.);
  • Creative distribution mechanisms to deliver stories, data, and information to key audiences;
  • Concepts that spark active engagement and collaborative problem-solving, e.g. games, crowdsourcing, and other projects that move the field from one-way communications towards authentic engagement;
  • Revolutionary ways to humanize the challenge and the solutions and to connect communities receiving aid to those who provide it.

The grant program is open to anyone from any discipline, from student to tenured professor, and from any organization – colleges and universities, government laboratories, research institutions, non-profit organizations and for-profit companies.

The deadline to submit applications for this opportunity is 15 May 2012. For more information, visit this link.

USAID’s Global Development Alliance inviting NGOs and Private Sector to address development challenges

 

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has issued the Annual Program Statement (APS) for the FY2012 Global Development Alliance (GDA) which brings together NGOs and the for-profit agencies together under the public-private partnership to address critical development challenges worldwide.

Under this APS, USAID is inviting the private sector for a mutually beneficial partnership where resources from both the parties will be leveraged equally leading to an increase in the sustainable impact of development assistance programs. Apart from the private sector, USAID has also opened the invitation to submit project ideas that reach out to the private sector and explore ways in which collaboration might help all the partners to more effectively solve key problems, advance respective interests and achieve far greater development results and impacts.

The alliances developed under the APS must support one or more of USAID’s core development initiatives and advance the development objectives and priorities that guide USAID’s development assistance programs and investments.

Only concept notes have to be submitted initially. Fully applications will be requested after review of concept notes. These have to be submitted at USAID Missions and B/IOs (i.e. regional bureaus, pillar bureaus, offices) of the USAID.

USAID will consider alliance concept papers as they arrive throughout the issuance period of the APS. However, resources are limited and we expect a significant number of submissions. The earlier a concept paper is received the greater the chance that funding might be available. The APS is issued annually and is open from date of release in 2012 until January 31, 2013.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation seeks grants proposals to transform health and agricultural development in the world’s poorest countries

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is seeking proposals for Round 8 of its Grand Challenges Explorations. The initiative is the part of a $100 million in grants aimed at encouraging innovation in the fields of global health and development research.

The initiative invites scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs from around the world to submit proposals for the opportunity to win $100,000 in grant and pursue their unconventional ideas aimed at transforming health and agricultural development in the world’s poorest countries.

Topics of Grand Challenges Explorations Round 8

  • Protect Crop Plants from Biotic Stresses From Field to Market
  • Explore Nutrition for Healthy Growth of Infants and Children
  • Apply Synthetic Biology to Global Health Challenges
  • Design New Approaches to Optimize Immunization Systems
  • Explore New Solutions in Global Health Priority Areas

Eligibility

Grand Challenges Explorations seeks to involve innovators around the world, including researchers who do not typically work in global health and development; those with innovative ideas in Africa, Asia and other parts of the developing world; people working in the private sector; and young investigators.

Selection Criteria and Grants

The initiative uses a streamlined, straightforward, online grant-making process.  The proposal process makes it easy to apply.  Applications are two pages, and preliminary data about the proposed research are not required. Grand Challenges Explorations is a unique initiative that supports innovative research of unorthodox ideas. Every aspect of the program, including the carefully designed topics describing critical scientific barriers to progress in global health, the two-page online application, and the rapid review process, are designed to swiftly award funding to scientists who are testing unproven ideas that could lead to breakthroughs in global health. The Gates Foundation and an independent group of reviewers will select the most innovative proposals, and grants will be awarded within approximately four months from the proposal submission deadline. Initial grants will be $100,000 USD each. Projects showing success will have the opportunity to receive additional funding up to $1 million over two years. Last date for submission of proposals is November 17, 2011. For more information, visit this link.

USAID seeking new applications for Development Innovation Ventures (DIV)

The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Annual Program Statement is currently seeking new grant applications under its new venture capital style fund called Development Innovation Ventures (DIV).

DIV emphasizes producing development outcomes more effectively and more cost-efficiently while managing risks and obtaining leverage by focusing on scale, rigorous testing, and evidence. DIV is a mechanism for working with partners to identify and test potential development solutions, and helping to scale those that are proven to produce development impact.

Breakthrough Solutions: DIV encourages entrepreneurs, innovators, businesses, academics, NGOs, and others to submit proposals for cost-saving development solutions. DIV seeks proposals with the potential to substantially improve development outcomes, rather than produce incremental changes.

Cost-reduction and Leverage: DIV seeks applications that have ideas for addressing development challenges more effectively and more cheaply. DIV utilizes staged financing to maximize cost-effectiveness and minimize risk. In supporting projects with the potential to reach wide-scale, DIV also seeks to leverage other partners in the private, non-profit, and public sectors.

Rigorous Testing and Evidence of Impact: The DIV model emphasizes testing potential solutions and rigorously evaluating impact – often through randomized control trials – in order to identify what works and what does not, and helping scale only those solutions proven to produce development outcomes.

Scale: DIV is explicitly interested in development solutions that have the potential to reach wide-scale, i.e. tens of millions of beneficiaries.

Application Process:

DIV is soliciting applications on a rolling basis over the next year. All applicants must be legally recognized organizational entities under applicable law, and organizations. (As with all USAID grants, any organizations that are in countries that are ineligible for assistance under the FAA or related appropriations acts are ineligible).

It is expected that the bulk of work involved in successful applications will be based in developing countries. Applicants can apply directly to any stage, and those who have received funding at a prior stage do not automatically advance to the next stage. In addition applicants will be asked to identify key personnel, how other resources and partners will be leveraged, and demonstrate awareness of environmental, social, political, or other relevant context in which they grant project will take place or be adopted. Stage 2 and 3 applicants will be required to submit a more detailed scaling plan, evaluation plan, and include the detailed cost application of the grant.

Projects that can attract leverage from other partners will be considered more favorably. Applications that include a statement of support from a relevant USAID office or field mission, and/or from relevant agencies within the host country government, while not required, will be considered more favorably.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft invites draft proposals for German-African Cooperation Projects in Infectology

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) wishes to support the cooperation between German and African scientists and to encourage research in Infectology. In this regard, the DFG seeks draft proposals for joint research projects that will focus on infectious diseases and their social implications. The implementation of these projects would need association between institutions to enhance the quality of international research centres in Africa and for this reason, the African partners for these projects can be rooted at such institutions.

The scope of the call includes:

  • The investigation of neglected infectious diseases in humans and animals but also research on topics of their social and economical impact.
  • The establishment or consolidation of mutually beneficial equal partnerships that allow African researchers to investigate topics of local significance and that open up research opportunities in Africa to German scientists in the long term.
  • An additional central goal is to provide support and funding for the academic and professional careers of young African researchers in their home countries in order to contribute to building research capacities in Africa.
  • It is furthermore desirable to strengthen research networks within Africa, therefore several African partners may participate in one project.

Eligibility

The Principal Investigator submitting the proposal must be integrated into the German research system and is in charge of the project. For grant eligibility on the German side, the usual DFG rules apply. For researchers at non‐university institutions, the rules on mandatory cooperation apply. More information can be found in the current version of Research Grants: Guidelines (DFG form 1.02e, chapter I.). Submissions by only African cooperation partners cannot be accepted for legal reasons.

Format of Drafts

Project proposals should initially be submitted as drafts (up to 5 pages per proposal, plus curricula vitae of up to 2 pages and up to 5 publications per project participant).

Drafts have to include:

  • the scientific description of the project;
  • the cooperation scheme;
  • a description of the African project partner’s current infrastructure;
  • a strategy for early‐career researcher training at the African location.

A detailed breakdown of expected costs is not needed initially.

  • Draft proposals must be written in English and submitted by the German project partners.
  • African project partners cannot propose independently without German scientists. German and African partners form a team and will each receive funding according to the project requirements.
  • Proposals should initially assume a project duration of three years. However, it will be possible to submit renewal proposals according to the established DFG procedures.

Last date for submitting the draft proposals is January 09, 2012.

Grant Round now open

COALAR is now accepting applications for projects from October 2011 to June 2012. Applications close on 30 May 2011.

Goals

COALAR provides funding for projects which further the goals of the Council:

  • To enhance and strengthen links between Australia and Latin America, particularly in the areas of business, education, science, sport, sustainability, tourism and cultural promotion;
  • To influence corporate Australia to initiate closer engagement with Latin America; and
  • To increase awareness and understanding of Australia in Latin America, and of Latin America in Australia.

While it is envisaged that the majority of grants would be for proposals of $20,000 or over, the COALAR Board will also consider those proposals of lesser value that will generate a high profile and high value impact in the countries involved.
