Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International academic institutions, public entities, private nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and for-profit organizations for research projects that benefit women and girls. Funding is intended for projects to study relevant gender equity initiatives and to assess how effectively they may be adapted to improve well-being and health across the Country.

Purpose:

The goal of this funding opportunity is to translate and adapt knowledge from around the world to the United States on approaches that can improve health or the determinants of health by improving gender equity. In the United States, determinants of health relate to personal safety, economic opportunity, education access (post-secondary or beyond), supportive workplace and social environments, and protection from bias and discrimination for vulnerable groups. The funding source is especially interested in understanding how to change systems, norms, and practices—such as patriarchy and heterosexism—that systematically disfavor women, girls, and other groups based on gender or sexual identity. Specifically, the Foundation seeks to learn from initiatives underway outside the United States whose effectiveness is supported or suggested by empirical evidence and that have the potential to be adapted and implemented in the United States.

Some examples of approaches of interest are those that aim to:

  • Achieve pay equity;
  • Provide supports in the workplace or other social environments for pregnant women, parents, and families;
  • Counteract cultural stereotypes or expectations that bias women and girls toward low-wage careers or health-damaging jobs or roles;
  • Address norms, practices, and resources in ways that reduce gender-based violence, aggression, or harassment;
  • Modify social expectations that promote risky behaviors or contribute to poor mental health;
  • Build on frameworks about gender, power, and health from groups around the world who have unique traditions and practices related to gender norms and roles;
  • Create opportunities for gender minorities to make decisions that affect their lives and communities, and to emerge as leaders in government and other positions of influence; or
  • Apply nonbinary interpretations of gender in policymaking, resource allocation, or service provision.

Grant funds may be used for project staff salaries, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, project-related travel, and other direct project expenses, including a limited amount of equipment essential to the project.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility and Selection Criteria
- Applicants may be based almost anywhere in the world; however, the Foundation will only fund proposals that demonstrate clear applicability to the United States.
- Research projects should reflect collaborations between U.S- and non-U.S.-based organizations, based on pre-existing relationships that demonstrate a durable and productive partnership. Projects that do not reflect a collaboration between U.S. and non-U.S.-based organizations will not be considered.
- Although collaboration is required, only one organization may serve as the lead applicant. The Foundation prefers that those with firsthand knowledge of or experience with the intervention in their home country setting lead this work; thus, the Foundation welcomes organizations based outside the United States to serve as the lead applicant. However, it recognizes that certain factors related to the logistics of administering the grant or the nature of the study may necessitate a U.S.-based partner to serve as the lead. Therefore, it will consider lead applicants both within and outside of the United States. All applicant teams must justify how the lead organization was determined.
- Awards will be made to organizations, not individuals. Eligible organizations include academic institutions, public entities, private nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and for-profit organizations that have a demonstrated history of administering grant awards and managing project funds.
- Projects must reflect meaningful representation from the intervention’s developers or administrators, participants, or other stakeholders who have direct experience with and/or contextual knowledge of the intervention.
- Studies may be conducted in any language, but proposals and deliverables must be submitted in English and all grant administration will be conducted in English.

In keeping with RWJF policy, grant funds may not be used to support clinical trials of unapproved drugs or devices, to construct or renovate facilities, for lobbying, for political activities, or as a substitute for funds currently being used to support similar activities.

Matching funds are not required, but supplemental funding is welcomed and encouraged. The ability to leverage other funding for the proposed research project is not a criterion for awarding grants, but it may be a consideration in the decision-making process. Awards may also be used to add a supplemental component to an existing project funded by another source; for example, if there is an existing, funded intervention study taking place in another country, this CFP could fund a supplemental study about translating or adapting the intervention to a U.S. setting.
