The Other Foundation Research Grant: Seeking Expression of Interests from African Researchers

Deadline: 31 August 2017

The Other Foundation is seeking expression of interests for its Research Grant to work with the data from the first statistically sound, nationally representative survey of opinions about homosexuality and gender non-conformity, in South Africa.

During this embargoed period, the Other Foundation will support interested researchers to work with activists and advocates to deepen this knowledge and analysis further, so that more insights can inform their efforts to advance the human rights, safety, and social inclusion of gay and lesbian people in South Africa.

Supporting Work

In particular, the Other Foundation is interested in supporting work that explores:

  • The ways in which language, culture and tradition reflect and reinforce or transform attitudes towards sexual orientation and gender identity;
  • The implications of the research results for public advocacy and campaign messaging by human rights activists, including testing in focus groups and recommendations for mass media work;
  • The nuanced ways in which religion influences attitudes and behaviour towards homosexual and gender non-conforming people in South Africa;
  • A better understanding of the demographic profile and the key influencers of people who share harmful attitudes and behaviour, based on perceived sexual orientation and gender identity ;
  • A better understanding of the values that might account for the shift in attitudes towards same-sex marriage and the ways in which these might be harnessed for a broader shift in attitudes towards homosexuality and gender non-conformity ;
  • Further analysis of geographic (especially rural vs. urban) as well as age and sex cross-tabulations of the research results and;
  • The public policy implications of the research results for South Africa, especially in relation to (but not limited to) violence against homosexual and gender non-conforming people.

Funding Information

  • The maximum amount of a grant to an individual is ZAR 10,000 for a period of up to 12 months.
  • The maximum grant to an unregistered organization is ZAR 50,000 over 12 months.
