The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) call for concept notes on “Learning from Peace in sub-Saharan Africa” falls under the grantmaking program of USIP’s Middle East and Africa Center (MEA). It is designed to support peacebuilding programs and research in Africa.
Priority will be given to local organizations, though U.S. and international organizations and universities with a strong history of work in the region may also apply. USIP supports both research projects and initiatives that focus on conflict resolution, conflict prevention, community resilience, peacebuilding and countering violent extremism.
