THE CONSERVATION, FOOD, AND HEALTH FOUNDATION - GRANTS TO NGOS WORLDWIDE. DEADLINE: JULY 1, 2014 Deadline: 1 July 2014 Open to: organizations located in developing countries or to developed country organizations whos activities are of direct and immediate benefit to developing countries. Grant: USD $15 thousand - $30 thousand Description The Conservation, Food and Health Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations worldwide for projects in conservation, sustainable agriculture, and health in developing countries. The deadlines for concept applications are 01 January and 01 July of each year. Incorporated in 1985, the Conservation, Food and Health Foundation seeks to promote the conservation of natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and improve health in the developing world. The foundation helps build capacity within developing countries in its three areas of interest with grants that support research or projects that solve specific problems. The foundation supports projects that demonstrate strong local leadership, promote professional development in the conservation, agricultural, and health sciences; develop the capacity of local organizations; and address a particular problem in the field. It prefers to support projects addressing under-funded issues and geographic areas. Grants • Most grants range from US$15 thousand to US$30 thousand for projects of one year. • Most grants are made on a one-time basis. • There is no policy concerning a minimum or maximum grant size. The average grant is approximately $17,000. Grants exceeding $25,000 are rarely awarded.
  • 3. • The foundation will not consider more than one proposal from an organization in any calendar year and will not fund an organization more than once in a funding year. • The foundation will not fund overhead or indirect costs of projects. • The foundation is very willing to cooperate with other funding sources with compatible interests to support a joint project or to provide matching funds. From time to time the foundation may also set matching requirements for grantees, particularly in cases where the foundation cannot provide full funding for the project. • The political beliefs of the applicants or the political relations of any state with the United States shall not be taken into account in making or not making any grant, except that the foundation will comply with any requirements imposed by law. • Grantees are expected to meet the foundation’s reporting requirements within one year of the previous proposal application. Returning applicants should submit an interim report with all copies of the proposal for renewal. A report outline will be sent with the initial grant letter. Reporting requirements are designed to maintain a reasonable balance between obtaining sufficient information for the foundation to assess expenditures, accomplishments and difficulties and avoiding burdensome work for grantees. Eligibility Ordinarily the foundation limits its support to those organizations that have received a letter of determination of tax exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code and are “not a private foundation” under section 509(a). However, the directors wish to remain open to the possibility of supporting certain equivalents, such as a domestic or foreign governmental unit or agency, or nongovernmental, foreign organization determined to be the equivalent of a 501(c)(3) organization, which can provide secure evidence of its nongovernmental status and charitable purpose. The foundation’s geographic focus is the developing world. It prefers to support organizations located in developing countries or to developed country organizations whose activities are of direct and immediate benefit to developing countries. The foundation does not consider the states of the former Soviet Union or former Eastern Bloc countries as within its geographic focus. The Conservation, Food & Health Foundation supports special projects and programs of non governmental organizations in three primary fields of interest: conservation, food, and health. Examples of areas of interest within these fields follow, but are not meant to be exclusive. Application Concept applications must be submitted by January 1 and July 1 in order to be reviewed for the foundation’s May and November meetings. In the case of a weekend or holiday, the deadline is the next business day. Applicants will be informed of the foundation’s decision regarding the concept application within 30 days of the concept deadline. This schedule is designed to give each invited applicant adequate time to prepare the full proposal if invited by the trustees. Applicants should submit only one application per review cycle.

GeT MA is a dual-degree masters program taught in English and designed for students from all over the world pursuing international careers in government agencies, diplomacy, public policy, NGOs, administration, consulting, journalism, teaching or research. GeT MA students attend graduate courses in the social sciences at the Middle East Technical University (METU) Ankara (year one), Turkey and the Humboldt- Universität zu Berlin, Germany (year two). Teaching and research in the GeT MA program have an interdisciplinary focus: this international masters program covers various sub-disciplines in political science and sociology while incorporating cultural and economic questions into the curriculum. Academic courses are taught by highly qualified professors from different academic disciplines on various topics such as modernization and democratization, Europeanization, and migration. Students deepen their empirical knowledge of political processes using Germany, Turkey, and other countries and regions of Europe as examples. A unique characteristic of GeT MA is Joint-Teaching: each semester one course is taught jointly by faculty from both universities. By experiencing academics from Germany and Turkey within one course, GeT MA students come to understand social science topics from different perspectives, encounter individual teaching styles, and enjoy the benefits of both university systems. Eligibility GeT MA welcomes applications from all over the world. Applicants should demonstrate interest in obtaining comprehensive knowledge of Social Sciences from German and Turkish perspective as well as in experiencing the European dimension of politics in both countries. Application requirements include a BA degree in a relevant area of study and a proof of very good English skills: • TOEFL (internet-based): 79; • TOEFL (computer-based): 213; or • IELTS (International English Language Testing System): 6,5. Scholarship GeT MA is a fee based program. Tuition fees for the two-year academic program amount to €2.500 per semester and need to be paid at METU. Students have to cover costs of living. The collected fees are entirely used to cover the costs for the GeT MA program. GeT MA provides a certain number of scholarships for non-German students and a limited number of tuition fee reductions to qualified students of the program. Applicants interested in these scholarships should state their need in their statement of purpose in the application form. The distribution of scholarships will be decided during the admissions process. Applicants will be notified when being made an offer for the program. Furthermore, there is a variety of foundations that provide financial support to students, the most famous ones being those affiliated with German political parties. Moreover, there are several funding options offered by corporations, union and even by individuals. An internet search is highly recommended (i.e. Association of German Foundations). Each foundation chooses the candidates according to its own criteria for eligibility. It might even be the case that you cannot apply on your own but have to be recommended by a third person. Most foundations offer a special academic support program alongside the student’s regular studies. Additional counseling is provided by the Studienkompass. GeT MA applicants are highly encouraged to apply for external funding.

КОНКУРС ПРОЕКТОВ «БИШКЕК – UPGRADE», ОФ «МОЛОДЕЖНЫЙ КУЛЬТУРНЫЙ ЦЕНТР» СОВМЕСТНО С МЭРИЕЙ ГОРОДА БИШКЕК ПРИ ФИНАНСОВОЙ ПОДДЕРЖКЕ МОЛОДЕЖНОЙ ПРОГРАММЫ ФОНДА «СОРОС-КЫРГЫЗСТАН». ПОСЛЕДНИЙ СРОК ПРИЕМА ЗАЯВОК: 21 МАЯ 2014 Г. В рамках подготовки к первому урбанистическому форуму в Бишкеке ОФ «Молодежный культурный центр» совместно с мэрией города Бишкек при финансовой поддержке Молодежной программы Фонда «Сорос-Кыргызстан» проводят конкурс идей и проектов «Бишкек – UPGRADE». Конкурс проводится в целях развития и улучшения города (центра, жилых районов и окраин) и направлен на развитие инновационной и активной деятельности молодежи по развитию города и территорий. Город создается его жителями, и ни одна стратегия городского развития не может быть успешной без участия горожан. Мы предлагаем вернуть город людям, и строить будущий город общими усилиями – городских властей, общественных организаций, неформальных команд единомышленников, бизнес компаний. Основные направления проектной активности: Бишкек комфортный. Жить, находиться, приезжать и возвращаться всегда приятно в место, где вам нравится, где вас ждут и любят, где вам тепло и комфортно. Попробуйте предложить городу то, что может помочь ему стать таким для всех. Масштаб вашей идеи может касаться как маленького уголка вашего двора, так и более крупных объектов и территорий. Бишкек безопасный. Город, в котором живешь со страхом за свою личную безопасность и безопасность своих родных и близких не назовешь комфортным. Выходить и гулять по улицам города до поздней ночи, не переживать за ребенка, переходящего дорогу или играющего во дворе, др. Что нужно сделать, чтобы это было реальностью Бишкека? Бишкек успешный. Сегодня отношение центр-периферия в нашем городе имеет традиционную форму. Центр – чистый, ухоженный, место развлечений и прогулок. Окраины и новостройки – районы без дорог и базовой инфраструктуры, парков и мест развлечений. Хочется переломить эту ситуацию, понять, как новые центры могут быть сформированы в разные частях города, какие события, инфраструктура, комплексы станут «точками притяжения» на периферии. «Бишкекское ноу хау». Бишкек – город самобытный и таким его делают различные инициативы людей, неравнодушных к своему городу, которые направлены на создание дружелюбного городского пространства. Какие новые решения мы можем предложить нашему городу? Какие уникальные черты стоит развивать для создания будущего города? Определите близкую по духу ваших идей тему и присылайте нам ваши предложения в виде заявок с идеями. Требования к участникам конкурса • В конкурсе могут принимать участие граждане КР в возрасте от 18 лет, осуществляющие или планирующие осуществлять деятельность по развитию города и его территорий. • В каждой номинации могут быть определены до трех победителей (1, 2 и 3 место).
