Request a Grant Writer

Competition for USA, Canada, and International entrepreneurs representing any business model, including both nonprofit and for-profits organizations, for creative initiatives to end poverty on a large scale. All winners will be awarded up to $20,000. Funding is intended to launch a pilot of the proposed program in any region of the world where extreme poverty exists.

Applicants are invited to submit a proposal that solves a distribution-focused initiative in the following areas:

  • Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene:¬†Chlorine Dispenser Challenge
  • Girls' Education: Sugar Daddy Awareness Challenge
  • Agriculture:¬† Quality Inputs Challenge, Custom Agriculture Challenge
  • Energy: Solar Lamp Challenge
  • Global Health: Patient Identification Challenge, Maternal Health Challenge, VMMC Challenge, PMTCT Challenge, Sayana Press Challenge, and the Immunization Challenge
  • Education: Flipped Classroom Challenge, Student Testing Challenge
  • Governance and Infrastructure: TGovernment Transparency Challenge
  • Custom: Propose Your Own Challenge: If you know of another proven intervention in need of greater distribution, D-Prize would like to hear it. The only requirements are to choose an already proven poverty solution that is in need of distribution to more people in the developing world.

D-Prize is exclusively interested in ventures that will scale distribution of an already proven poverty intervention in the developing world. D-Prize does not fund prototypes of promising new interventions.
