1) Objective

The Williams Institute and SAGE’s Global LGBTIQ+ Aging Seed Grants Program is designed to encourage new empirical research and data collection on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex older adults (ages 50 and above) in least developed, low-, and middle-income countries (as defined by the DAC list of ODA recipients). The program also aims to strengthen research capacity among participants by supporting partnerships between researchers and civil society organizations, knowledge exchange (including a colloquium to present research findings) and providing mentorship, where needed, from Williams Institute scholars and SAGE.

The program promotes two goals:
– Generate sound empirical research on issues impacting LGBTIQ+ older adults in least developed, low-, and middle-income countries that impacts law, policy, and service provision.
– Strengthen the capacity of researchers from low- and middle-income countries to further conduct rigorous, impactful research on issues impacting LGBTIQ+ older adults through partnerships, knowledge exchange, and mentorship (as needed).

2) Eligibility

At least part of the research team must reside or work in countries defined by the DAC list of ODA recipients, and the research must focus on issues impacting LGBTQI+ persons in those countries. Proposals must consist of partnerships between experienced researchers and civil society organizations.

3) Location

The initiatives NNHF supports take place in developing or transition countries where some infrastructure is already present. These are preferably in the low, lower-middle and upper-middle income categories, as defined by the OECD Development Assistance Committee (OECD DAC) list.

4) Budget

They plan to fund projects with a budget up to $4,999. Funds will be disbursed in a lump sum and can provide both salary support and costs associated with acquiring and analyzing new or existing data. Proposals that are part of larger research initiatives are also welcome. Funds will be directly awarded to individual grantees and not through universities or other institutions. They cannot provide funding for indirect (or overhead) costs. Requests for travel funding should be limited to travel that is needed to carry out the research project. Project budgets should be for activities from April 1, 2024 to April 1, 2025. Applicants should consult a tax adviser on any potential tax liabilities stemming from an award of a small grant.

5) Application

Applications are done via their online application portal. The application deadline is 31 January 2024.
