Call for Appplications: Sloan Foundation Funded Science Festival Program
The Science Festival Alliance (SFA) is currently seeking applications from new science festival initiatives in US communities with a relatively small resource base interested in receiving matching funding, mentoring, and travel support. The support is available thanks to the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
Application deadline: Friday, June 21, 2013
Award recipients will receive:
• One time challenge grant intended to jump-start a new or significantly expanded, and annually recurring, festival initiative. Challenge grants will match up to $10,000 in funds raised specifically for a festival initiative.
• Mentoring support from established science festival initiatives.
• Travel support that will provide reimbursement for: 1) a visit to a science festival in action, and 2) attendance at the International Public Science Events Conference, tentatively scheduled for February, 2014.
By December 1, 2014 award recipients will be expected to:
• Launch a recurring (preferably annual) festival initiative in the US with a primary focus on science, technology, engineering, and/or math. The festival initiative must be either new or a substantial expansion of a smaller existing annual event. The initiative may be led by a single organization, but it must be collaborative in nature, with mechanisms in place for programming involvement by other individuals and groups as appropriate. The festival must serve a region or community with a relatively small resource (described further below).
• Hold a first set of public events. The festival initiative should seek to serve a meaningful critical mass of attendees as appropriate to the region served and overall budget for the initiative. Attendance goals for this first event may shift in the course of festival planning, but must not be lower than 2,000.
• Travel to an existing science festival in session for observation, and attend a professional meeting related to science festivals.
• Participate in the development of “how-to” resources to assist future new science festival initiatives.
• Appropriately recognize challenge grant funding support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
• Complete on-time reports to the Science Festival Alliance on activity related to this program.
• Participate in the Science Festival Alliance network.
What is meant by a community with a “relatively small resource base:”
• A region with relatively low funding resources, such that a first year budget for a festival would not be expected to exceed $60,000; and/or,
• A region with relatively low levels of STEM research activity and few formal and informal education institutions; and/or,
• A region with a relatively small population base.
• Applications in the form of a single PDF document must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business, Friday, June 21.
• If you have questions about this specific application process, or science festivals generally, you are encouraged to contact the Science Festival Alliance at any point in the process.
• Applications will be reviewed by a committee assembled by the Science Festival Alliance. This committee will be asked to keep application details confidential.
• The most promising candidates will be contacted for phone interviews in June or July of 2013, and may be asked to supply additional written material prior to the determination of up to 12 award recipients.
• All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by no later than August 30, 2013.

Applicant organizations must be based in the United States or its territories. The focus of this program is the United States; studies involving other countries will be considered only to the extent they may directly inform U.S. law and policy.
Survivor Network Project 2013-2014 Call for Proposals
The International Campaign to Ban Landmines and Cluster Munition Coalition (ICBL-CMC), through its Survivor Network Project (SNP) and with financial support from the Norwegian government, is launching a request for proposals to support promising landmine and cluster munition survivor networks in sustaining and building their capacity to empower survivors and carry out advocacy.
Eligibility to Apply
This request for proposals is designed to support survivors’ networks. Survivors’ network are defined as an interconnected, mutually supportive group of individuals that are survivors of incidents from mines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war, or family members of survivors or of victims that have been killed as a result of an incident with mines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war. Many include persons with disabilities. Work to build and sustain the network should be led and carried out by survivors, with few exceptions.
Survivor networks must be members of the ICBL-CMC.
Survivor networks must be legally incorporated as non-profit organizations OR must be able to receive funds via another non-profit organization that acts as a fiscal agent.
Survivor networks that will have active projects ongoing as of 1 October 2013 with
funding from the SNP are not eligible to apply to this RFP.
Survivor networks that have received funding through the SNP previously and whose projects’ will be completed prior to 1 October 2013 are eligible to apply and their applications will receive the same consideration as all other applications received.
In selecting successful applications, priority will be given to networks in countries or areas with significant numbers of landmine and/or cluster munition survivors and/or the greatest victim assistance needs.
The purpose of the project
The purpose of the SNP is to empower survivors and survivor networks to:
1) Participate in national victim assistance/disability coordination mechanisms to contribute to the coordination and monitoring of victim assistance and broader disability issues in their countries;
2) Advocate for and participate in the design and implementation of all sectors of victim assistance and disability initiatives;
3) Serve as effective national and international campaigners for the universalization and full and effective implementation of all articles of the Mine Ban Treaty and the Convention on Cluster Munitions.
Grant amounts: Grants are available ranging from $10,000 to $40,000
Please request the amount that you need to implement the activities you describe in your proposal. If the amount requested seems to be too much or too little to implement the activities described, the ICBL-CMC would discuss with you the amount requested.
Grant period: All grants will start on 1 October 2013. Grants may be for a period of up to 14 months. All activities must be completed by 30 November 2014.
Survivors’ Networks can request funds to support a range of activities, listed below. However, all proposals must describe plans for advocacy on the implementation and universalization of the Mine Ban Treaty/Convention on Cluster Munitions and Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (where relevant). All proposals must also include a gender perspective; staff and outreach workers should be diverse and able to interact with men, women, girl and boy survivors. Any services provided should be both gender and age appropriate.
Possible activities include:
Advocacy on the Mine Ban Treaty and Convention on Cluster Munitions and on victim assistance, disability rights and human rights, including advocacy on broader disability issues.
Participation in national processes to include a survivor perspective in any and all relevant policy frameworks, such as disability, development, poverty reduction and or human rights policies. Activities of this kind may include a component of international participation in policy development if it is directly linked to national activities.
Outreach to expand an existing network within a country or within a sub-region.
Activities specifically designed to strengthen the organizational capacity of the network, such as management and leadership skills for network leaders, necessary equipment purchases, or plans to increase the financial sustainability and impact of the network.
Activities to empower network members, such as peer support, human rights, resilience and campaign/advocacy trainings.
Service provision (such as income generating projects, job placement, sports activities or other social inclusion projects) and/or assistance to access services when this directly contributes to the strengthening of the network and the empowerment of its members so that members are better able to participate in advocacy activities. This should not be the central component of a proposal but rather should support the implementation of network building and/or advocacy activities.
Needs assessments of network members that will both help the survivors’ network to serve its members and can be used to inform policy makers about the needs of survivors.
How to Apply
As stated above, the project period will run from 1 October 2013 to 30 November 2014. Proposed projects must fall within this period and must be a minimum of six months (1 October 2013 – 31 March 2014) and a maximum of 14 months (1 October 2013 – 30 November 2014).
Please note that full narrative and financial reporting will be required in each calendar year (2013 and 2014). This means that a full narrative and financial report must be submitted for the period from 1 October 2013 – 31 December 2013 regardless of the length of the entire project.
The deadline for applications is Monday, 1 July. All applications must use the provided narrative and financial templates. When completing the budget template, please feel to adjust line items, including by adding or deleting existing line items, to fit the project proposed. You must submit two budgets; one for all activities in 2013 and another for activities in 2014.
Please read the application guidelines carefully before completing the application. Applications must be prepared in English, typed and signed electronically and submitted by email to email@example.com.

Request for Proposals: International Innovation Grant
The International Innovation Grant provides research funding in support of novel and innovative projects that can have a significant impact on cancer control in low- and middle-income countries.
The International Innovation Grant is a one-year research grant of up to $20,000 that is awarded and paid directly to a nonprofit organization or governmental agency in a low-income or middle-income country. The grant may be used by the organization only for the approved, budgeted costs of the research project. Each grant will have a Principal Investigator who is an ASCO member, is affiliated with the Grantee Organization, and is a resident of the low-income or middle-income country.
International Innovation Grants are hypothesis-driven research grants that fund a specific research project that may result in the discovery of new knowledge about how to advance cancer control in a low- or middle-income setting. It is anticipated that novel approaches and clinical designs proposed for this grant may differ from what would be considered standard practice within high-income settings. Grantee Organizations and Principal Investigators will be expected to share and disseminate the knowledge gained during their research project.
The online system will open for Letter of Intent submission on July 1, 2013. All Letters of Intent must be submitted by August 1, 2013.
