Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Grand Challenge Explorations
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will begin accepting applications for the next round of Grand Challenge Explorations (https://gcgh.grandchallenges.org/about) in September 2017.
Grand Challenges Explorations is an initiative where initial grants are for USD $100,000 and successful projects are eligible to receive follow-on funding of up to USD $1 million. Proposals are solicited twice a year for an expanding set of global health and development topics. Applications are only two pages, and no preliminary data is required. Applicants can be at any experience level; in any discipline; and from any organization, including colleges and universities, government laboratories, research institutions, non-profit organizations and for-profit companies.
