Internal Deadline: Dismantling Barriers and Improving the Quality of Education for Women and Girls in Fragile, Conflict and Crisis Situations

Global Affairs Canada (GAC) has issued a call for proposals for a new initiative, “Dismantling Barriers and Improving the Quality of Education for Women and Girls in Fragile, Conflict and Crisis Situations”. This initiative will be funded to a total of $80M over 5 years.

This call will support development assistance projects in fragile, conflict and crisis situations, including in refugee-hosting countries. The call is intended to promote greater coherence between humanitarian actors and host governments and to increase access and reduce barriers to quality education for women and girls. Projects must clearly demonstrate collaboration with one or more local organization(s) or include a plan outlining how this collaboration will be formed.

Applicants are expected to present project proposals which:

  • have a duration of least three years and not more than five years;
  • present budgets ranging from $10 million to $12 million;
  • take place in ODA-eligible countries.

Full details can be found on the Government of Canada's website.

Note that applicant organizations cannot submit more than one proposal to this call. Any Dalhousie faculty member interested in this opportunity is therefore requested to contact the International Research Manager as soon as possible, and not later than Friday 11 January 2019, to register interest and obtain more information.
