United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs: Humanitarian Futures Grant Programme 2012

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is open to accepting applications for the OCHA Humanitarian Futures Grant Programme 2012. The purpose of the programme is to build the capacity of young researchers to study topics relevant to humanitarian action. It provides financial support to enable original research and writing on issues and trends that relate to: 1) the changing drivers of humanitarian need; 2) the system for responding to those needs.

All research projects must be completed within a maximum of six months and result in the preparation of a 20-40 page paper. Projects that include field work and original research will be prioritized. The projects should not focus on the role of OCHA.

The maximum grant payable under this programme is $4,000, with the exact disbursement to be determined by the nature of the work and the total number of selected projects. The final papers will be published on the OCHA website so they benefit the humanitarian and wider community. Grantees will retain ownership of their work and it will not be used by OCHA for any other purpose.

The grants are open to anyone aged 32 years and under on 1 September 2012.
Research projects on any topic of relevance to humanitarian policy and practice are welcome.
The deadline to submit applications is 20 July 2012. For more information, visit this link.
