Growth through Nutrition: Seeking Proposals for Small Research Grant Program

Deadline: 11 March 2018

Growth through Nutrition is seeking proposals for its Small Research Grant Program under the Feed the Future Ethiopia Growth through Nutrition Activity.

Feed the Future Ethiopia Growth through Nutrition Activity is USAID’s five-year flagship (Sept 1, 2016, to August 31, 2021) multi-sector nutrition and WASH project. The project aims to improve the nutritional status of women and young children in Ethiopia’s four productive regions, focusing on the first 1,000 days (from conception to age two). Growth through Nutrition builds off ENGINE’s success and will expand and strengthen its effective and promising interventions, and make significant investments in the agriculture and WASH sectors to further enhance the GoE’s multi-sectoral approach to reducing stunting.

As part of the project overall learning agenda strategy, with a view toward building capacity and supporting local researchers, a small research grant program has been developed by Tufts University. This program will help in providing support to local researchers conducting research that aligns with the research goals and interests of Growth through Nutrition in improving programming and policy around Nutrition, Agriculture, and WASH.
