Global CFP Eligibility

  • Is there a preference for which organization should be designated as the lead?

    We are interested in learning from interventions taking place outside the U.S., and we believe that those with firsthand knowledge or experience with an intervention in its home country setting are in a better position to lead research on transferability and adaptation, compared with partners who are not located in the home country. However, we also recognize that the logistics of administering the grant may be prohibitive for some non-U.S. organizations or that other aspects related to the nature of the study may necessitate the U.S. partner serving as the lead. Therefore, we will consider lead organizations both outside and within the U.S. All applicants are required to provide justification for how the lead organization was determined.

  • What is considered a “pre-existing relationship” and why is this necessary?

    Applicants must demonstrate that team members from both the U.S. and non-U.S. organizations have successfully worked together previously. The prior work should reflect elements of strong collaboration – such as mutual trust, communication, and a system for coordinating tasks – that can serve as a basis for this project. Due to the inherent challenges of collaboration across countries, cultures, or long distances, having a track record of previous partnership helps ensure a more successful project.

  • Who is eligible for funding through this CFP?

    Eligible applicants include U.S and non-U.S. based organizations, such as academic institutions, public entities, private nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and for-profit organizations. Applicants must have a demonstrated history of administrating grant awards and managing project funds. 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. Note that U.S. laws and regulations (e.g., U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Financial Assets Control Sanctions Programs) limit funding in certain countries.

  • Who should be part of the research team?

    In addition to the Principal Investigator(s), the research team should include other project staff or partners from both the U.S.- and non-U.S.-based organizations, including research staff, program implementors, administrators, or other stakeholders whose perspectives are necessary to guide the research approach and activities.

  • Who may serve as a Principal Investigator?

    Anyone may be designated as the Principal Investigator (PI). The PI does not need to hold an advanced degree nor need to be one of the researchers for the project, provided the research team as a whole has the capacity to complete the proposed research. Two PIs may be listed in the application, but the team is not limited to these two individuals. For ease of administration, it is preferable, but not required, for the PI to be based at the lead organization.

  • Can individuals apply for this CFP?

    No, awards will only be made to organizations.
