Gates Foundation Announced Grants Recipients
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced the latest Grand Challenges Explorations (GCE) grant recipients. 28 Projects in 11 countries received an initial grant of USD 100,000.
Grand Challenges Explorations is an initiative where initial grants are for USD 100,000 and successful projects are eligible to receive follow-on funding of up to USD 1 million. Proposals are solicited twice a year for an expanding set of global health and development topics. Applications are only two pages, and no preliminary data is required. Applicants can be at any experience level; in any discipline; and from any organization, including colleges and universities, government laboratories, research institutions, non-profit organizations and for-profit companies.
We invite you to read our latest GCE blog and summaries of the GCE grants funded to date (over 1300 grants in 65 countries) and to check out the interactive world map of investments across the global Grand Challenges funding partner network.
We will begin accepting applications for the next round of GCE in September 2017.
In addition, Grand Challenges Canada has an open grant opportunity at this time:
