    Attn: Health and Social Development practitioners – $50,000 for intervention strategies 

    Intervention funding

    Hi Funds Fans!  If you work with children, please share this post far and wide.

    Data for Life Prize invites applicants to submit a successful but under-recognized life-saving intervention for children under five that deserves more rigorous study. Two winners will receive $50,000 each to fund meticulous, independent, year-long field studies of their chosen intervention.  Deadline: June 18th, 2014.

    Who can apply?
    Anyone ‚Äď any organization or person can apply. The Prize is open to anyone who is in a position to save children‚Äôs lives but lacks the means to quantitatively assess the impact of their work. Practitioners fighting to reduce child mortality as well as researchers in this area are encouraged to apply for the Data for Life Prize.

    The goal of the Data For Life Prize is to save as many children’s lives as possible by identifying and strengthening under-recognized life-saving interventions that are highly impactful, scalable, and cost-effective, but currently lack scientific evidence of their impact. Accordingly, the winning applicants will propose studies that will yield previously unavailable proof demonstrating the efficacy of programs that deserve much greater support. By securing this proof, these programs will be empowered to save more lives.

    The Data For Life prize funds are intended to secure valuable pieces of scientific evidence that will save children’s lives. Prize funds may be spent on a combination of collecting field data where a life-saving intervention is deployed, the deployment of the intervention itself, or the capacity and personnel needed to deploy the intervention. The goal is to obtain the best evidence possible with the funds available.

    A new fund for human rights and social justice issues :) 

    Global human rights fundingGood day, Funds Fans!¬† Here’s another new fund for human rights and social justice.

    The Nippon Foundation provides overseas grants to non-profit organizations based outside of Japan. They can be local, regional or international NGOs/NPOs, and include educational and research institutions. The Foundation does not accept applications from, nor provide grants to, private individuals or for-profit organizations.  Grants range from $25,000+ (estimate)

    Grants are given to programs planned and conducted by overseas non-profit organizations in such areas as basic human needs, human resources development, and promotion of international cooperation.

    Due weight will be given to proposals which contain at least one of the following:

    • Pragmatic and realistic approaches to issues and problems
    • Potential for future development and self-sustainability
    • Far-reaching social and regional impact
    • Pioneering significance; creating new visions and acting as catalyst for positive changes and social transformations
    • A diversity of race, gender, ethnicity, social class, cultures and societies

    There is no application deadline as such, and applications can be received throughout the year. However, since the screening procedures may take as long as five months, it is strongly recommended that applications be submitted at least half a year before the planned start of the project, or whenever the funding will be needed.

    There it is, folks!  Go and get it!!
