Grant Description
Competition to a USA, Canada, or International nonprofit organization, for-profit, government agency, academic institution, or individual for projects to reduce the mortality rate of children under the age of five. Project proposals may include but are not limited to intervention solutions in healthcare services, technology, education, infrastructure, and agriculture.

The Funding Source wants to fund a project that includes scientific component producing evidence that matters. To them, that means new, previously uncollected evidence that an intervention is able to save a lot of children’s lives. It is also important that the intervention be scalable and cost effective, so that more children’s lives can be saved.

Projects are evaluated on their:

  • Ability to impact rates within a child mortality indicator (U5MR, IMR, NMR, etc.)
  • Effectiveness
  • Innovation and scalability of the intervention approach within global health
  • Feasibility of the proposed lives-saved estimate
  • Probability of success
  • Ease of verification
  • Inclusion of a process impact assessment


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)
