Good Data Grants are back – as Digital Impact Grants!
Digital Impact is very pleased to announce the opening of the 2017 cycle for our Digital Impact Grants program to advance the use of digital data and infrastructure for social good.
Launched in 2016 with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Digital Impact Grants support research and innovation to strengthen the safe, ethical, and effective use of digital resources in civil society.
We’re seeking proposals for two types of projects: scholarly research and sector advancement. Proposals should have broad application for improving knowledge, practices, and outcomes across the social sector.
New for 2017: Digital Impact Grants is now accepting proposals from nonprofits and universities in the U.S. and abroad!
To learn more about this opportunity, read the full Request for Proposal and check out our Digital Impact Grants FAQ. And be sure to mark your calendars: the deadline for proposals is June 12th at 5pm PT!
