The Grand Challenges family of initiatives fosters innovation to solve key health and development problems. See below for Grand Challenges and related grant opportunities.
The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) is accepting applications for NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards: a cash prize of $50,000 plus travel costs to attend an international Innovator Summit. Catalyst Awards reward bold, potentially transformative new ideas to improve physical, mental, or social well-being and health for people as they age – in a measurable and equitable way. The competition is open to United Sates residents or institutions of any background or discipline. Global collaborator organizations are also administering Catalyst Award competitions in their respective countries and regions concurrently, which can be found on the Healthy Longevity Global Competition website.
