International Research Funding Alert

October 2022

Title:Annual Program Statement for Development Innovation Ventures
Sponsor:US Agency for International Development
Deadline:October 31, 2022
Amount:See Solicitation for Details
Summary:Through a year-round grant competition, Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) sources proposals for innovations that address international development challenges and improve the lives of people living in poverty in developing countries around the world. DIV provides tiered funding to pilot, test, and transition to scale (i.e., grow to reach the highest number of beneficiaries possible) those innovations that demonstrate evidence of impact, cost-effectiveness, and the potential to scale.
Title:Alternative TV Rating measurement system in Moldova
Sponsor:Department of State, U.S. Mission to Moldova
Deadline:October 31, 2022
Summary:The U.S. Embassy invites interested organizations to submit applications for projects that would provide reliable, statistically valid television ratings measurement in Moldova. This program has the goal of establishing an independent trusted provider of unbiased (open) data on TV audiences in Moldova to be used by advertisers, media outlets and other stakeholders. Reliable and trustworthy ratings data are essential for a functioning media market. This project seeks a partner who has a research-based, creative proposal to collect and publish such data for Moldova. Applicants are encouraged to think broadly about the problem and propose solutions that will result in ratings data that reflect reality and can be proven to be accurate.
Title:Growth Poles Activity
Sponsor:USAID Lilongwe
Deadline:November 14, 2022
Summary:The purpose of this activity is to accelerate environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable, resilient, and more inclusive wealth generation in Malawi by mobilizing rural-based private sector investments and partnerships with anchor firms and their surrounding communities, smallholder organizations, cooperatives, and MSMEs in a growth pole approach, with a youth and gender lens. It will build on the strong foundation of early growth pole development established by the FTF Agricultural Diversification (AgDiv) activity. In Malawi, growth poles will be developed and strengthened with and through anchor firms (or several firms) that have long-term business strategies that are inherently inclusive (incorporate smallholder farmers, for example) and climate-positive and resilient (dependent on improved soil and watershed health), with robust environment, social and governance (ESG) strategies, and existing hard and soft infrastructure, that have a need of partnerships that can catalyze economic growth, resilience, and inclusivity results. Most companies in Malawi that fit this concept operate in the agricultural, food, energy, forestry, agroforestry and/or tourism sectors.
Title:Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases
Sponsor:National Science Foundation
Deadline:November 16, 2022
Location:Global, see solicitation for details
Amount:$1,500,000 - $3,000,000
Summary:This program supports research on the ecological, evolutionary, and social drivers that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases. The central theme must be the quantitative or computational understanding of pathogen transmission dynamics. The intent is discovery of principles of infectious disease transmission and testing mathematical or computational models that elucidate infectious disease systems. Proposals for research on disease systems of public health concern to developing countries are strongly encouraged, as are disease systems of concern in agricultural systems.
Title:Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience
Sponsor:National Science Foundation
Deadline:November 22, 2022
Amount:See solicitation for details
Summary:Through the CRCNS program, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Department of Energy (DOE); the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF); the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale de la Recherche, ANR); the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF); Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT); and Spain’s State Research Agency (Agencia Estatal de Investigación, AEI) and National Institute of Health Carlos III (Instituto de Salud Carlos III, ISCIII) support collaborative activities that will advance the understanding of nervous system structure and function, mechanisms underlying nervous system disorders, and computational strategies used by the nervous system.
Title:Collaborative Research Grant
Sponsor:National Endowment for the Humanities
Deadline:November 30, 2022
Amount:See Solicitation for Details
Summary:The Collaborative Research program aims to advance humanistic knowledge by fostering rich scholarship that a single researcher could not accomplish working alone. The program supports sustained collaboration by teams of two or more scholars. Teams may propose research in a single field of study or interdisciplinary work. NEH encourages projects that incorporate multiple points of view and pursue new avenues of inquiry in the humanities.
Title:Summer Institute for the Study of East Central and Southeastern Europe
Sponsor:American Council of Learned Societies
Deadline:December 1, 2022
Amount:See Solicitation for Details
Summary:ACLS has partnered with the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia (CAS) to create the Summer Institute for the Study of East Central and Southeastern Europe (SISECSE) to enable scholars to undertake local fieldwork and research in Bulgaria and engage in interdisciplinary discussions. In 2023, 2024, and 2025, ACLS and CAS will convene leading scholars from Eastern Europe and North America for a two-week residency, hosted by the American University in Bulgaria (AUBG), in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria.
Title:U.S. Embassy Philippines Alumni Small Grants FY2022
Sponsor:Department of State, U.S. Mission to the Philippines
Deadline:December 31, 2022
Summary:PAS Philippines invites proposals from alumni of U.S. government-funded exchange programs for projects that strengthen ties between the Philippines and the United States through projects that highlight shared values and promote bilateral cooperation and priorities. Proposals should also encourage alumni collaboration and strengthen alumni networks. Alumni can submit proposals as individuals or as an alumni-led non-profit organization.
Title:Translation Projects
Sponsor:National Endowment for the Arts
Deadline:January 12, 2023
