Uses and Use Restrictions
USIP assistance may be used to support research, education, training, Track Two, unofficial diplomatic initiatives, and other peacebuilding projects, such as mediations and dialogues, undertaken by scholars and practitioners working at academic institutions, nongovernmental organizations and other nonprofit agencies both in the United States and around the world.
It will advance understanding of and promote impactful projects on themes that span the full life cycle of conflict?from early warning and conflict prevention, to negotiation, mediation and conflict management, to transitional justice, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR), and post-conflict peacebuilding.
Nonprofit or public institutions are eligible to apply.
USIP does not accept applications from individuals who are not affiliated with an eligible institution. Funding is not available for degree work (payment of tuition fees or support for M.A.
or Ph.D.-related work).
Inquiries for dissertation research support should be directed to USIP?s Jennings Randolph Peace Scholar Dissertation Program.
Applications that list as participants, consultants, or project personnel members of USIP?s Board of Directors, staff or fellows will not be accepted. USIP does not fund grant proposals of a partisan political nature or proposals that would inject the grantee or USIP into the policy processes of the United States government or any foreign government or international organization.
In addition, in accord with the United States of Peace Act, Section 1709 (b), USIP will not use political tests or political qualifications in selecting or monitoring any grantees.
Projects that lead to policy recommendations for governments, international organizations, or nongovernmental organizations are welcome and encouraged, although such recommendations will be those of the grantee and not USIP. USIP does not provide support for the creation of a new organization, construction or maintenance purposes, direct social services, or microenterprise projects, nor does it provide funding to government agencies or to individuals working for government agencies. All application materials must be in English unless specified otherwise in the specific call for proposals.

Criteria for Selecting Proposals
USIP is committed to reviewing all grant applications in a thorough, rigorous, and expeditious manner. USIP grant competitions generally require applicants to first submit a concept note that briefly outlines their proposed project. All concept notes must be submitted via the Institute?s online grants management system. (Please consult the specific grant opportunity for instructions on how to register on this system.) All concept notes must be submitted by the grant opportunity deadline. USIP staff will review the concept notes and notify applicants as to whether their project idea will be moving ahead in the process. Applicants whose concept notes are selected will be invited to submit a detailed full application. Once USIP has received a completed application, it undergoes a rigorous, confidential review by USIP staff and external subject matter experts. USIP?s Board of Directors makes the final decision on funding for grants. Please see USIP page on grantmaking for more information on eligibility and selection criteria.
