Human-Centered Design (HCD) Micro Grants to tackle Poverty

Deadline- 15 July 2013

The Human-Centered Design (HCD) Connect is providing small grants to catalyze new best practices to help to ensure that people – using human-centered design to tackle poverty-related challenges around the world – are receiving direct input on their solutions.

This program is also supported by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This program focuses on projects using human-centered design towards agriculture-related projects.

HCD Connect will be accepting applications from June 1 to July 15, 2013 (deadline 11:59PM PST). It will consider the information provided in the application as well as your participation on the HCD Connect platform as part of the selection criteria.

In order to be eligible to apply for a Microgrant, a project must meet the following three criteria:

    The project must be related to agricultural development.
    The project must have drawn from, or be planning to employ, the methods and approaches of human-centered design.
    Someone from the project team must create a story on HCD Connect detailing the project or proposed project. In general, grant-making preference will be given to active participants on the HCD Connect platform.

HCD Connect Microgrants in the following two categories-

    $5,000 Planning Grant: planning grants are for individuals or organizations initiating the human-centered design process as part of a particular project and requiring funding to conduct HCD “hear” or “create” research.
    $10,000 Implementation Grant: implementation grants are designed for individuals or organizations that have experienced the human-centered design process and need funding to pilot or implement their project solutions.


Micro Grants Program is open to all countries around the world
