Deadline: 1 July 2018
The Conservation, Food and Health Foundation is seeking applications to protect natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and promote public health in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East.
The foundation supports projects that demonstrate local leadership and promote professional development in the conservation, agricultural, and health sciences; develop the capacity of local organizations; and address a particular problem or question in the field. It prefers to support projects that address under-funded issues and geographic areas.
The foundation supports special projects and programs of non-governmental organizations in three areas: conservation, food, and health:
- Conservation: Conservation grants help improve ecological and environmental conditions in low- and middle-income countries. The foundation supports field research and related research activities, training, and technical assistance efforts that:
- help conserve ecosystems and protect biodiversity
- train local leaders in conservation and protection of resources, with an emphasis on technical and scientific training
- Food: Food grants help research-based efforts to improve food and nutrition security and improve natural resources and ecosystems. Areas of interest include projects that:
- promote or develop specific sustainable agriculture practices with potential to advance science and practice in other countries;
- test and refine innovative education and training interventions for small scale farmers; and
- advance new approaches to control pests and diseases affecting important food crops in low-income countries.
- Health: The foundation supports public health programs that focus on populations rather than individuals. It funds programs that emphasize disease prevention and health promotion over those that emphasize disease diagnosis, treatment, and care. It supports research, technical assistance, and training projects that:
- improve public health through community-based efforts that address health promotion, disease prevention, family planning, and reproductive health; and
- increase the understanding and treatment of neglected tropical diseases
The average grant is approximately $20,000. Grants exceeding $30,000 are rarely awarded.
