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 in a variety of ways. To enable African researchers who live and work on the continent the opportunity to explore the data first, the results of this groundbreaking survey have been embargoed for a 12-month period up to 31 August 2017. In the longer term, the data set will be made publicly available.

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.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Only researchers that live and work in Africa will be given access to survey data during the embargoed period and only researchers (individuals or organizations) that are based in and work in Africa will be given research grants.
