Nov 9,2017 | Consortium_staff Announcements

PEER is a competitive grants program that invites scientists in developing countries, partnered with U.S. government-supported collaborators, to apply for funds to support research and capacity-building activities on topics with strong potential development impacts. This program is designed to leverage the investments other USG-supported agencies have made in scientific research and training while supporting the initiatives of developing country scientists.

Cycle 7 applications features an Open Call for proposals from all 65 eligible countries on a wide range of development-related fields, including, biodiversity, agriculture, environment, clean energy, disaster mitigation, food security, water/sanitation, urbanization, democracy and governance, and education. Proposals on selected health-related topics may be appropriate for submission under the new focus area Multiple Countries/Family Planning and Reproductive Health. Several countries are the focus of specially targeted calls this cycle, including Cambodia, Indonesia, Haiti, Laos, Peru, Tunisia, and Zambia. There is also a regional call focused on projects in the Middle East and North Africa relevant to health issues in refugee host communities.

Details on eligibility criteria can be found here.

The deadline for submitting a pre-proposal is January 12, 2018.
