The U.S. Agency for International Development's (USAID) Global Development Lab (LAB) is pleased to announce the release of two new Addenda under the Science, Technology, Innovation and Partnerships Annual Program Statement (STIP APS). Both Addenda seek to engage global Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in advancing development research, innovation, research utilization, and training.  

The BRIDGE-Train Addendum to the STIP APS aims to support institutional partnerships between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in USAID Partner Countries and U.S.-based HEIs to develop research, innovation, and training centers for knowledge development aimed at addressing local and/or national development priorities.

The BRIDGE-U Addendum to the STIP APS seeks to establish or further develop a locally-led, HEI-based hub for research utilization in a USAID Partner Country to enhance capacity for translating development research and innovation.

Though the goals of these Addenda are closely related, the LAB sees each Funding Opportunity as targeting a different point along the “research-to-action” spectrum. Please share the BRIDGE-Train flyer and BRIDGE-U flyer with relevant partners in your networks.


Questions and further clarification about each Addendum are due to Julia Banks, jbanks@usaid.gov, with a copy to LABCDR_Feedback@usaid.gov by 12pm EST on December 30, 2019. 

Concept Notes are due by 5pm EST on January 31, 2020. Additional information regarding the Objectives and Application process for BRIDGE-Train and BRIDGE-U can be found in the full announcements and associated materials on grants.gov.
