Applications for the Development Marketplace for Innovation in Addressing Gender-Based Violence must be received online by September 5, 2018.
 
In April 2018, the bank and SVRI awarded 11 research teams from around the world a total of $1.1 million. The winners, chosen from hundreds of submissions by research institutions, NGOs, and aid and other organisations, were from Papua New Guinea, Armenia, Cambodia, Colombia, Honduras, Jordan, Kenya, Nepal, Peru, Rwanda, and South Africa.
 
The organisations say they will once again disburse more than $1 million to advance evidence-based interventions to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) in low- and middle-income countries. 
 
All applications must be submitted and received via the SVRI and World Bank Group Grant Awards online system by midnight (South African Standard Time, or 4:59:59 EST) September 5, 2018.
 
Only applications submitted through the online system before the closing date and time will be considered. Winners will be announced in April 2019.
