We are very excited to announce that ITP, the US Fund for UNICEF, and the UNICEF Innovation Team will collaborate on a small set of grants for ITP students working on innovations in emergency response.
We’re looking for student submissions that highlight the potential for innovative systems, technologies, or communications approaches to streamline or improve emergency relief and recovery efforts. Submitted projects should be responsive to both international and US contexts.
The grant is being offered to ITP projects with direct or thematic ties to the Design For UNICEF class. Teams with a current or recent ITP student serving as a core member are eligible for funding, with proposals due 21 June 2013.
Please see this Request For Proposals for information and contact details.
