Grants of up to $25,000 to USA and Colombia institutions of higher education for joint agricultural research development projects. Applicants must register and join the funding source's network prior to applying for a grant. Funding is intended to promote partnerships between institutions that improve the capacity of cacao research and promote student exchange programs in the cacao sector.
Partners of the Americas and the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs (WHA) at the U.S. Department of State (DOS) invite higher education institutions (HEIs) from the United States to partner with higher education institutions in Colombia to submit proposals for this U.S.-Colombia 100,000 Strong in the Americas (100K) Innovation Fund grant competition.
This 100K Innovation Fund grant opportunity is supported through generous contributions from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the U.S. Department of State. It is designed to support innovative partnerships between HEIs that will result in new models of inclusive, scientific exchange programs between agricultural researchers, both students and faculty, which will improve both countries’ cacao research capacity and support exchanges of scientific and technical personnel in the cacao sector.
For this 100K U.S.-Colombia focused competition, teams of HEIs between the U.S. and Colombia are invited to partner to submit proposals that show how they will use the grant to design and carry-out applied research, exchange programs, both virtually and in-person, for students and faculty during 2023-2024. Proposals that focus on developing exchange and research programs between a diversity of HEIs that will be inclusive of students and faculty are encouraged.
The purpose of the 2022 Cacao for Peace Innovation Fund Grant Competition is to provide funding to increase HEI partnerships and the development of scientific exchange programs between agricultural researchers, including both students and faculty, to improve Colombia’s cacao research capacity and to support exchanges of scientific and technical personnel in the cacao sector. HEIs are invited to work together in teams to create and implement new student/faculty exchange and training programs in areas related to the cacao value chain, including production, processing, packaging, marketing, exporting, and other related areas. Proposals must propose, or be connected to, a research project focused on the cacao sector and describe how the project will enhance the capacity of students and faculty to perform advanced, applied agricultural research.
