The World Bank Group and the Sexual Violence Research Initiative announces a new open call for awards recognizing promising innovations aimed at preventing and responding to gender-based violence.

SVRI and the World Bank Group will disburse more than US$1 million to advance evidence-based interventions to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) in low- and middle-income countries. An expert panel will select winners engaged in research, interventions, or other activities related to GBV prevention and response based on overall merit, research/project design and methods, significance, project manager/team, and ethical considerations. This year, the Call for Proposals includes the private sector; companies that have engaged in preventing and responding to GBV are encouraged to apply.


Awards of up to $100,000 are available. Any applications with requests exceeding USD100,000 will not be considered. Seed grants up to $40,000 are also available for applications from private companies interested in evaluating workplace programmes and can provide matching funds. These seed grants can only be used for publicly available outputs.


  • Applications for support under this award should be affiliated with a recognized, legally constituted research institution, a company or non-government organization with existing research or programming capacity.
  • A maximum of two proposals will be considered for funding per applicant. Only one award through this mechanism may be held by an applicant until the project has been completed.
  • Award applications that are proposing work on behalf of UN Agencies will not be considered.
  • Previous award winners will not be considered as principal applicants.
  • Partnerships between multiple organizations are encouraged, for example, a local NGO and an academic institution, or north-south academic partnerships or a company with a NGO or an academic institution.
  • Proposals must have at least one partner from a low or middle-income country to be eligible for funding. Where appropriate, these partnerships should have as an objective building the research capacity of the implementing agency.
  • All projects under this call should focus on GBV prevention and response in low and middle-income countries.
  • Due to high levels of competition and limited funds available, the quality of the proposal submitted will determine success in receiving the award.
  • Private sector; companies that have engaged in preventing and responding to GBV are encouraged to apply.

Eligible Countries and Organisations

  • Low and Middle-Income Countries: All organizations based in low and middle-income countries (as classified by the World Bank), and organizations not based in low and middle-income countries but working in such countries with at least one partner from a low or middle-income setting are eligible to apply.
  • Track Record/Experience: Priority will be given to organizations/companies with a track record of research and intervention development for the prevention of or response to gender-based violence in low and middle-income countries.
  • Institutions Only: Awards will only be made to institutions, companies and not to individuals. All organizations are eligible to apply, including academic, research, NGOs and companies.
  • Number of Proposals: An organization/company may submit a maximum of two applications but no organization will receive more than one award.
