Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, USA
The Foundation's Global Development Program supports work to reduce poverty and hunger. To make grants, they periodically issue requests for proposals (RFPs) to solve the problems that are central to their funding strategy. The GDP funds aspects of agricultural development.

ESRC/DFID International Development (Poverty Alleviation) Research Scheme
The Scheme seeks to fund new thinking on international development issues. Most small and medium term grant funding for development is for applied and often very context specific work only. For this scheme, applications maybe for basic research or more applied research topics. It also aims to raise the quality and impact of social

119 science research in development. Methodological rigor is essential but it is vital that all research for development is able to demonstrate effective demand from and practical utility to policymakers and practitioners. All proposals submitted must set out the potential impact of research on poverty reduction, show who stakeholders and potential end users of research outputs are and discuss how they will be involved in the research. It encourages multidisciplinary research - 50% of each proposal is required to be from the social sciences. Up to the remaining 50% of funds can be invested in other academic lines of enquiry. This contributes to links between disciplines and enables new partnerships on development questions. It aims to give access to international development research funding to a broader set of actors. The partnerships created allow smaller institutions, who would not be able to develop and manage large grants, to become involved in new research. It is open to Southern institutions as bid leaders, not just as partners. funding/esrc-dfid/funding-calls/index.aspx
