The Development Impact Lab is a USAID-funded research network administered through UC Berkeley to support scientific, engineering, and economic breakthroughs that address pressing challenges in global development. DIL’s Spring 2014 Explore grants offer up to $5,000 for international travel to develop a new science or technology idea or expand partnerships for research and technology implementation. DIL in particular encourages applications for travel by graduate students and postdocs. Proposals must be endorsed by the applicant’s UC Berkeley PI and fit into their lab’s research agenda. Successful applications lay the foundations for projects that foster the design, rigorous testing, or scale-up of technological solutions for international development. They also integrate science and engineering advances with targeted economic or social insights. Applications must be submitted through DIL’s website. The deadline is March 20, 2014, at 11:59 pm PST.
