Grants will be typically in the range of US$ 50,000 – 75,000 (inclusive of all costs) for a period of no more than 12 months for each award.

Preference will be given to projects from low-middle income regions/countries with a known high burden of drowning and that are innovative in nature, either testing innovative interventions or using innovative methods to evaluate existing interventions (even if they have previously been tested in high-income countries).

Applications must be submitted no later than 5pm Eastern Standard Time (USA) on Monday, 6 January 2014 via email to iiru@jhsph.edu.
