Grants

Sight and Life emphasizes the need to work in partnership with others in a way that is collaborative, supportive, and transparent. All of the projects we support fall within one of our three strategic areas.

Key action areas include: advancing research that increases our knowledge of nutrition interventions and their delivery platform; facilitating the sharing of best practice as a key driver for advancing knowledge and building capacity; and mobilizing support to ensure that nutrition gains the political attention and funding needed to make real gains in addressing all forms of malnutrition for the world’s most vulnerable populations. 

Sight and Life no longer accepts unsolicited applications for humanitarian grants. In line with our vision and mission, we now offer education, conference, speaker and facilitator, and travel grants.

Conference Grants: assistance for speakers and facilitators, and travel support

Sight and Life offers two types of conference grants - one for speakers and facilitators and another that is a travel support grant. Both are detailed below. If you believe you are an ideal candidate for one of these grants, we look forward to receiving your   application.

Education Grants: a commitment to capacity building

Sight and Life offers education grants which support students or young professionals in their nutrition or public health studies at the bachelor’s, master's or PhD level, as part of our commitment to capacity building. We consider these on an application-by-application basis, based on the submitted   application form. Please provide the necessary documents.

Speaker and Facilitator Grant: facilitation with a country, regional, and global focus
