The Whole New World Foundation (WNWF) has recently launched Data for Life Prize Program of $100,000. The prize is aimed at identifying and strengthening under-recognized life-saving interventions (in the sector of child mortality) that are highly impactful, scalable, and cost-effective, but currently lack scientific evidence of their impact. The Prize is open to anyone who is in a position to save children’s lives but lacks the means to quantitatively assess the impact of their work. Practitioners fighting to reduce child mortality as well as researchers in this area are encouraged to apply for the Data for Life Prize.
The program will help identify the best approaches for reducing child mortality by supporting accurate, scientific evaluation of the number of lives that they save.
Two winners will receive $50,000 each to fund meticulous, independent, year-long field studies of their chosen intervention. Applicants must be aware that the prize funds may only be used for charitable purposes, subject to expenditure responsibility.
- Applicants can be any organization or person. Individuals, commercial companies, non-profit, community, and governmental organizations, worldwide are eligible for the grant prize.
- Applicants should propose studies that will yield previously unavailable proof demonstrating the efficacy of programs that deserve much greater support.
- Child mortality researcher, epidemiologist, or public health student or professional, can apply for the prize partnering with a practitioner (someone directly conducting a life-saving intervention) to develop an application for the Prize.
Applicants need to complete the first round entry form and submit. Selected applicants will be invited to submit detailed information for the second round.
