Grant Program 2016 - GIF: for Innovative Solutions to Global Development Challenges with the Potential for Substantially Greater Impact than Existing Approaches, Especially for Poor and Vulnerable Groups (Grant up to USD $15 Million)

Posted by Shofi Fida Wednesday, October 14, 2015 0 comments
GIF is open and accepting applications from social enterprises, for-profit companies, non-profit organisations, government agencies, international organisations, and researchers in any country to apply for funding. We take applications on a rolling basis, with no specific deadline to apply.

GIF welcomes applicants to propose innovative, cost-effective solutions that address any major development challenge in any country (or in multiple countries) in the developing world.

We evaluate our investments within the following criteria:

1.    Innovation and Impact 
GIF supports innovations that benefit people living on less than the equivalent of $5 per day (PPP) in developing countries, and we are especially interested in innovations that impact people living on less than $2 per day (PPP). We are also seeking innovations that benefit vulnerable groups such as women and girls, the disabled, minority or indigenous groups, refugees or displaced communities, or other vulnerable populations.
2.    Potential to Scale
We seek innovations that have potential to eventually scale up and meaningfully improve the lives of millions of people living in developing countries. We ask all of our applicants to share their vision and plans for growing their innovations to a large scale, as we hope that many of the innovations we invest in will eventually reach this goal. Innovations should have strong potential to be politically, logistically, and financially viable at scale, whether they plan to commercialize or attract ongoing public support.
3.    Team
We look for innovators with the relevant expertise and capabilities to achieve success, with clear roles, responsibilities, and time commitments needed to be successful. Teams should be able to demonstrate strong knowledge of the problems they are addressing and what approaches are likely to work in the local environment surrounding their innovation (e.g. operational, geographical, political, or social context).
