Ford Offers $4M For U.S. Sexuality
(Deadline: Feb. 1) A new Ford Foundation grant solicitation seeks to strengthen the capacity of social science researchers to inform
public policy and public understanding of sexuality-related issues from a human rights perspective.
The solicitation, called Sexuality, Health, and Rights Among Youth in the United States: Transforming Public Policy and Public
Understanding Through Social Research, will support research projects combining three areas of activity: (1) social science research;
(2) training of graduate students; and (3) strategic communications to inform public policy or public conversations. Each project
must include plans for all three areas of activity.
All proposals must demonstrate how they would inform public policy or public dialogue on targeted sexuality or reproductive health
and rights issues. Institutions of higher education and nonprofits may apply for funding. The foundation plans to award $4 million in
grants, with awards up to $500,000 each.
Insiders' Tip: The following types of proposals receive preference:
Those exploring the role of structural inequalities, stigma and discrimination, and mechanisms of social exclusion related to gender,
sexual orientation, class, race and ethnicity, and their intersections.
- Those exploring how youth and adults in local communities seek to understand and address sexuality, health and human rights
through a range of individual and collective actions.
