Deadline: 1 April 2017
The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is seeking applications for its program entitled “Strengthening Social Cohesion Initiatives in Yemen” to deepen the impact of current interventions centered on the strengthening of social cohesion, led by CSOs in Yemen.
USIP seeks to solicit proposals for projects which aim to:
- Strengthen community-based conflict mitigation structures and systems.
- Enhance community security, access to justice, community-based dialogue and other social cohesion mechanisms.
USIP seeks to make two or three small grants with the range of $15,000 (minimum) to $50,000 (maximum).
- Non-profit and academic institutions are eligible to apply for funding, provided they are duly registered organizations with demonstrated capacity to manage U.S. government funding. Private sector for-profit organizations are not eligible to apply. USIP does not make grants to individuals.
- Support cannot be provided to government agencies or to employees thereof.
- Support cannot be provided to non-governmental organizations for a formal evaluation of their own programming unless otherwise indicated. USIP will, however, consider applications that propose an NGO research or evaluation consortium for the purposes of conducting a comparative study.
- Those currently working on USIP-funded projects or contracts may not be eligible to apply.
- USIP does not provide funds for the creation of a new organization, the construction or maintenance of an office, direct social services, or micro-enterprise projects.
- Grant funds are not available for degree-related work. Requests for dissertation research support should be directed to USIP’s Jennings Randolph Peace Scholarship Dissertation Program.
- Applications that list as participants, consultants, or project personnel any members of USIP’s Board of Directors, staff or fellows will not be accepted, nor will applications that list USIP as a collaborator in the project’s activities.
How to Apply
- Step One in the process is to submit a mandatory concept note.
- Concept Notes should be submitted using the USIP online Grants Management System given on the website.
