Other engagement opportunities

Incentive Grants

The MITS Surveillance Alliance Secretariat has released a solicitation for small incentive grants to expand the use of MITS in low- and middle- income countries. This includes funding —paid in an amount of $1,000 per MITS completed— and MITS kits for approved studies. The Request for Applications (RFA) process has been launched via this website.

The RFA is now available for download here

For process or other clarifications, applicants are requested to submit questions to MITSAllianceGrants@rti.org prior to January 25, 2019.
Responses will be shared with all and posted on https://mitsalliance.org on February 1, 2019.

Concept papers will be accepted from February 1 to February 28, 2019 by 5:00pm (Eastern Standard Time). All submissions must be sent directly to MITSAllianceGrants@rti.org
