Funding - Resource

The Women's Health Innovation team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is looking for innovations and ideas that address opportunities outlined in the Opportunity Map


This initiative is open to nonprofit organizations, for-profit companies, international organizations, government agencies and academic institutions. We particularly encourage applications involving projects led by women or from women-led organizations and applications from institutions based in low- and middle-income countries. Proposals should be aligned to local public health systems. Additionally, collaborations are highly encouraged.


The funding level for each award is a total of up to USD $150,000 for a project lasting up to 2 years, based on the scope of the proposed project. We intend to fund up to 3 proposals for each of the 8 in-scope Opportunity Areas listed above and in Table 1. The proposed budget must realistically reflect the technical work and project deliverables within a time frame of up to 2 years; in some cases, a smaller budget and/or shorter grant period may be justified. Budgets and scope may be negotiated with applicants as part of the review process to ensure the foundation's ability to fund a robust and balanced portfolio with good geographic scope with the existing available budget.
