    Up to $2,500 for collaborative history projects 

    History projectsHi Funds Fans!  Here’s a darling little fund for collaborative projects aimed at improving history education within Canada.

    THEN/HiER is the first pan-Canadian organization devoted to promoting—and improving—history teaching and learning by bringing together the multiple and varied constituencies involved in history education: academic historians; public historians in museums, archives and historic sites; practicing teachers; researchers based in faculties of education; and curriculum policy makers. Their goal is to stimulate an active, participatory dialogue among these various communities of history educators, a dialogue that explores how best to improve history education in all its forms through more research-informed practice (from kindergarten to graduate school) and more practice-informed research.

    Through the Small Projects Grant Program, each year THEN/HiER sets aside $25,000 to support small projects and events related to history teaching and learning in Canada. They welcome proposals from THEN/HiER partner organizations and individuals, including graduate students, as well as others engaged in history education research and practice in Canada. THEN/HiER will consider requests for support up to a maximum of $2,500There is no deadline to apply as they will consider requests for funding throughout the year.

    Proposals should indicate in the budget other sources of funding, including in-kind contributions. They should also clearly state how the project will involve collaboration across different THEN/HiER constituencies (for example, between teachers and academic historians, or between teacher educators and a public history organization such as a museum).

    NOW OPEN: Whitley Awards for wildlife and nature conservation 

    Also on Twitter @WhitleyAwards

    Also on Twitter @WhitleyAwards

    Good day Funds Fans!  More good funding news on the environmental front today 🙂  The Whitley Awards are for wildlife and nature conservation focused projects.  Whitley Awards recognise the leadership qualities of individuals working with effective teams with strong nature conservation experience. We look for people who are excellent ambassadors for the work that they do.  It is not a requirement of the team leader to hold professional scientific qualifications. However, projects that aim to address issues on a biological level will need to demonstrate that activities will be informed based on scientific data. The inclusion of appropriate scientists or expertise on the team will also be expected if this is relevant to the project.

    Application to the Whitley Awards is open and applicants do not need to be nominated.  Whitley Awards are worth £35,000 GBP in conservation funding to be spent on projects over a period of one year.  Up to seven Whitley Awards will be available in 2014.  The deadline for applications is Thursday October 31st 2013.

    NOW OPEN: RFP opportunities at IDRC 

    International Development Research Centre

    Hello Funds Fans!  May your inner researcher rejoice 🙂

    The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is a Canadian Crown corporation established by an act of Parliament in 1970 to help developing countries find solutions to their problems.   IDRC encourages and supports researchers and innovators in those countries to find practical, long-term solutions to the social, economic, and environmental problems their societies face. Their goal is to find ways to reduce poverty, improve health, support innovation, and safeguard the environment.  IDRC offers many competitions and awards for developing-country researchers, institutions, and Canadian researchers.  From supporting research on simple cropping systems to training in grant administration, IDRC funds work that helps developing countries build research capacity—and find answers.

    At present, IDRC has two RFP opportunities as follows:

    IDRC requests proposals for Consultants to provide three scoping studies on Public-Private Partnerships. Work is expected to start September 2013.  Each applicant must submit a comprehensive and detailed proposal in one, two, or three areas of study (public health, agriculture, or food security), indicating the area(s) for which they are submitting a proposal. Each proposal must include a separate implementation plan and budget for each of the area(s) indicated. Each area of study will be evaluated separately.  Deadline: Friday, August 9, 2013 at 13:00 hours Eastern Standard Time (EST)

    In partnership with the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the International Development Research Centre is pleased to launch a call for research proposals on Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) – generating evidence on women’s economic empowerment, gender equality and growth in low-income countries with a focus on low-income countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.  The program will produce high-quality evidence on three sets of inter-related questions.

    The GrOW program will award grants to institutions on a competitive basis.   As a result of this Call, they expect to fund approximately 15 institutions with grants ranging from $ CAD 300,000 to an amount not exceeding $ CAD 1 million.   Projects should be scheduled to be completed within a timeframe of no less than 18 months and not exceeding 36 months, including all research activities and final reporting.  Deadline: October 25, 2013 at 4:59 EDT (Ottawa time)
