Deadline: 31 July 2017
The Conquer Cancer Foundation (CCF) is currently seeking proposals for its International Innovation Grant to provide research funding in support of novel and innovative projects that can have a significant impact on cancer control in low- and middle-income countries (LMCs).
The International Innovation Grant is intended to support proposals that have the potential to reduce the cancer burden in local communities, while also being potentially transferable to other low- or middle-income settings.
- The International Innovation Grant is a one-year research grant of up to $20,000 that is awarded and paid directly to a nonprofit organization or governmental agency (“Grantee Organization”) in a low-income or middle-income country.
- The number of International Innovation Grants in each funding cycle is not predetermined by the Conquer Cancer Foundation.
- Awards are given based on individual merit and availability of funds.
All of the following criteria must be met in order to qualify for the International Innovation Grant:
- Applicant Organization:
- Must be an organization with a charitable purpose registered as a not-for-profit with the relevant national authority or must be a government agency. This organization will administer the grant funds for the sole purpose of the project. Examples of potential not-for-profit organizations are medical societies or associations, advocacy organizations, foundations, hospitals, and universities.
- Must be located in a country categorized by the World Bank as Low-Income, Lower-Middle Income or Upper-Middle Income.
- Must have been operating for at least one full year, have an acceptable management structure and processes in place, and be solvent with or without the support of the International Innovation Grant.
- Should have experience in carrying out activities with tangible outcomes.
