Proposal Deadline: October 31, 2014, at 5:00 PM EST | Initiative Details

This is a final call for proposals to the Global Innovation Initiative, a higher education grant competition funded by the United States and the United Kingdom to strengthen higher education research partnerships between the U.S., the UK and four other countries: Brazil, China, India, and Indonesia. This initiative provides exciting grant opportunities for post-secondary educational partnerships on topics of global significance in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the following four areas: energy, climate change and the environment; agriculture, food security and water; global health; and urban development. Accredited U.S. post-secondary educational institutions are invited to apply for one of approximately six grants of up to $200,000 each, and must apply together with at least one higher education partner in the UK, and one in Brazil, China, India, and/or Indonesia. 

Two parallel, but separate grant competitions are offered in the U.S. and UK, and an institution from either country will be required to take the lead on the partnership. Partnership proposals with a U.S. lead institution must apply through the U.S. competition and those with a UK lead institution must apply through the UK competition. 

Proposals to both grant competitions are due by 5:00 PM EST on October 31, 2014, and U.S.-led proposals should be submitted via email to GII@iie.org. Grant recipients will be announced in spring 2015.
