Institutional Grants

Deadline Date: 03/01/2018

Agency: Tinker Foundation

Scope: The Foundation's Institutional Grants program has as its goal the creation of effective policy changes to improve the lives of Latin Americans. The Board of Directors has identified three program areas in which focused, expert research has the potential to make significant positive impact: (1) Democratic Governance; (2) Education; (3) Sustainable Resource Management. Projects should have a strong public policy component, offer innovative solutions to problems facing these regions, and incorporate new mechanisms for addressing these programmatic areas. Activities may include, but are not restricted to, research projects, workshops and conferences related to the Foundation's areas of interest. The Foundation encourages collaboration among organizations in the United States and Latin America and prefers to fund those institutions that are actively engaged with external stakeholders in addressing an issue of concern. Funding for general support may be considered on a limited basis. Potential applicants are encouraged to submit a brief letter of inquiry to ascertain the Foundation's interest prior to submitting a full proposal.
