2021 INGENUITY FUND – REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

 

We are delighted to be launching third round of the 120 Under 40 Ingenuity Fund in 2021. This round of funding will build on the 2020 round of funding to continue to foster creative, groundbreaking solutions to family planning’s biggest challenges, especially as we look at COVID-19 and beyond.

The overall purpose of the 2021 120 Under 40 Ingenuity Fund is to encourage the winners of 120 Under 40 to think creatively and inventively about ways to advance family planning and reproductive health for women and men, communities, and countries around the world. The fund is designed to reward fresh, inventive thinking that will enable breakthroughs in family planning and reproductive health — the kind of thinking that can cause a “positive disruption” in some aspect of family planning, and in this unique circumstance also alleviate a much-needed gap in family planning and reproductive health. The primary objectives of the 2021 120 Under 40 Ingenuity Fund are the following:

  • Award funding to 120 Under 40 winners to implement creative and inventive problem-solving about challenges in reproductive health and family planning, encouraging them to grow as thought leaders and participate even more fully in charting the course of the family planning movement.
  • Infuse additional creative energy and ideas into the thinking around the future of family planning.
  • Amplify the visibility and reach 120 Under 40 Ingenuity Fund winners’ projects, including spotlighting their work at the 2022 World Contraception Day, 6th International Conference on Family Planning, and through multiple Gates Institute and 120 Under 40 promotional activities and materials, such as website, social media posts, and e-mail newsletters.

Who is eligible: Winners of the 120 Under 40: The New Generation of Family Planning Leaders
Grant award amount: Minimum of 3 grant awards up to 15,000 USD per award

Graduates of the Summer Institutes have become government ministers, policy leaders, CEOs of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), parliamentarians, leading researchers and advocates, and even a head of state.

The new Leadership Accelerator will engage mid-career policy-makers, program managers, advocates and academicians who exhibit exceptional promise and potential for leadership and achievement in global health.

OVERVIEW

The two-week Global Health Leadership Accelerator will impart innovative approaches to leadership, program management, policy analysis, strategic planning, communications, advocacy and organizational change. Through dynamic discussions and hands-on exercises, participants will learn new skills, apply them to real-world examples and reflect on what they’ve learned.

The discussion-based course will be led by the following:

Henry Mosley, MD, MPH – Professor Emeritus, Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health, JHSPH
Ben Lozare, PhD – Director, Training and Capacity Building, Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs
Jose Rimon II, MA, PgDip – Director, Bill & Melinda Gates Institute, and Senior Scientist, Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health, JHSPH

Specifically, students will be able to:

Recognize the importance of self-reflection to clarify one’s values and purpose in life, and understand how one’s mindset (world mental models) shapes the reality that one observes
Describe the underlying relationships and deeper patterns that shape it, and identify leverage points for change

Build committed action-learning teams based on shared goals and values, mutual respect, and a willingness to take risks and learn from mistakes

2020 INGENUITY FUND – REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: COVID-19 FOCUS

 

The 120 Under 40 Ingenuity Fund  seeks to galvanize the 120 Under 40 winners to think big and bold about family planning challenges, specifically as they relate to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. The fund is designed to reward fresh, inventive thinking that will enable breakthroughs in family planning and reproductive health — the kind of thinking that can cause a “positive disruption” in some aspect of family planning, and in this unique circumstance also alleviate a much needed gap during this global pandemic. It is a fitting funding opportunity for the 120 Under 40 winners, who are the next generation of family planning leaders; it will challenge them to grow as thought leaders and to participate even more fully in charting the course of family planning post-2020. It will also result in an injection of additional creative ideas into the thinking around family planning’s future.

A small number of awards will be available, and funding will range from USD $3,000 to USD $20,000. The concept underpinning this fund is “small is beautiful,” recognizing that seemingly small actions can have huge repercussions. Funding may be viewed as a prize for the best ideas or can be utilized to carry out proposed projects/activities. The “ingenuity” in the fund’s name can be interpreted as the creation of a new idea as well as the reframing of existing approaches and systems.

This opportunity allows the 120 Under 40 winners to not only receive additional funding, but also to access a global platform from which to share that idea. The funded projects will be presented and shared globally at the sixth ICFP in Pattaya, Thailand.

Applications will be taken via video. Funded applicants will be required to submit a summary report detailing how they used the funding and what impact their proposal has made.
