GCC Call For Proposals

Choose Language


KCL in partnership with Grand Challenges Canada (GCC) is inviting qualified applicants to apply for GCC’s latest Request for Proposals through the Stars in Global Health program, in partnership with the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC).

Through this call for proposals, GCC seeks to create an opportunity to landscape the state of innovative ideas seeking to address adaptation needs as climate change continues to impact health and wellbeing. This funding call is looking for projects that address the following challenge statement:

The Stars program is seeking bold solutions that address the human health impacts of climate change in low- and middle-income countries.

These innovative solutions are expected to address the adaptation gaps and build resilience against the effects of climate change on the human health and well-being of underserved communities. Solutions should consider the fact that older adults, women, young people, Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, LGBTQI+ individuals, and other traditionally underserved and minority groups are most vulnerable to the health impacts of climate change in many contexts.

Through this RFP, your innovative ideas stand to benefit from a seed grant of up to $150,000 CAD. We encourage locally-led organizations who are meaningfully connected with the communities they are looking to work with and for, to apply to the request for proposals.

Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants of up to $150,000 CAD for up to 18 months to develop and test their proposed innovation.
