Call for Proposals

It is our pleasure to advise you that The SVRI Research Grant 2021 call for proposals is now open.

The grant is dedicated to funding innovative research that contributes to the prevention and response of violence against women (VAW), violence against children (VAC) and other forms of violence driven by gender inequality in low and middle-income countries.

Essential details on the grant value, duration and application process

Applicants can apply for grants between $40,000 to $200,000 for projects that are not longer than 24 months. The common characteristic of these awards is the provision of limited funding for a short period of time to research projects with clear, measurable outcomes.

All applications must be submitted by midnight (South African time) on 15 September 2020. Only applications submitted via the online system before the stated closing date and time will be considered.

Applications must be made via the ProposalCentral online system, and can be submitted in English, French and Spanish. All information needed for proposal submission is available in the English, French and Spanish versions of The SVRI Research Grant Guidelines.
