Global Affairs Canada (ORS Deadline: April 06, 2021; Sponsor Deadline: April 14, 2021)

Call for Concept Notes – Education for Refugee and Displaced Children and Youth in Sub-Saharan Africa

Details: This call is designed to increase access to education for refugee and displaced children and youth. Targeted capacity building, combined with small grants for core activities, locally driven education-related programming and policy engagement, would amplify the voices of refugee and internally displaced people (IDPs) and those of organizations that represent them and are led by them. Through innovative solutions, the call aims to increase access to quality education by providing additional funding for organizations that are best placed to understand the needs of their communities and are on the front lines of providing essential education services for refugees and IDPs. This call will enable dynamic partnerships between Canadian organizations, national organizations, host communities, and refugee-led organizations (RLOs) and IDP-led organizations. It will be an important contributor to the emerging evidence base and global learning on the role of RLOs and IDP-led organizations in directly enhancing education outcomes of refugee and IDP children and youth. Context-specific, locally driven solutions and conflict-sensitive design will be critical in ensuring the use of adaptive and responsive approaches that integrate risk management strategies.

Value: Global Affairs Canada expects to fund a limited number of projects, valued between $5 million and $20 million each.

Deadline: There is an institutional cap of 1 application for this call. Interested applicants are to contact ORS (director@ors.ubc.ca) by 10:30am, Tuesday, April 6th with project rationale draft. In case there is more than 1 expression of interest, a selection committee will be called to select the application to go forward to meet the sponsor deadline on April 14, 2021.

Encouraging Vaccine Confidence in Canada
Details: Vaccines are fundamental tools for preventing infectious diseases, and low vaccination rates can threaten the health of Canadian and international communities. As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has shown, complex factors influence the decision to accept vaccines. Some of these factors are dependent on science literacy levels and others are personal or societal. Achieving widespread vaccine acceptance requires an understanding of the need for vaccines, an understanding of the safety of vaccines, the removal of barriers to access vaccines, and greater confidence in vaccines. Canadians need reliable and trusted sources of evidence to inform their decisions about vaccines.

To meet this need, Encouraging vaccine confidence in Canada PromoScience grants support organizations with strong track records of science and/or health promotion to deliver evidence-based, vaccine-promoting information to key communities and groups and/or to build capacity in the community to promote confidence in vaccines. Jointly administered by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), it is expected that funded activities will mobilize knowledge to improve public understanding of vaccines and help Canadians to make evidence-based decisions, especially among populations that are hesitant about vaccines. Activities supported by these grants should encourage participants to become discerning consumers of natural sciences and engineering, humanities and social sciences, and health information. Through their proposed activities, organizations should aim to build on existing networks, infrastructures and relationships with Canadian and international partners where possible.

Value: Grants have a value of up to $50,000 and are to be used over a one-year period.
Application Deadline: Before 8 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on April 5, 2021. Late applications will not be accepted.
