Request for Proposals

The Sabin Vaccine Institute is implementing the second iteration of its Social and Behavioral Interventions for Vaccination Acceptance Small Grants Program. The primary goal of the program is to identify promising social and behavioral interventions for increasing vaccination confidence in low- and middle-income countries by designing and piloting interventions that will contribute to generating knowledge about vaccine acceptance and proposing viable solutions across social contexts. The secondary goal of this program is to strengthen collaborative relationships for social and behavioral research between academic researchers and immunization program managers at the in-country and local levels.

Under this program, grants of $25,000 each will be awarded for intervention research projects, which can be conducted over a period of 10 months beginning in September 2020.

The deadline for proposal submission is Friday, July 17, 2020, 11:59 PM EST.
