PEER brings together the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and other agencies of the U.S. government to address critical challenges in international development. PEER invites scientists in developing countries to work with U.S. collaborators in research and capacity building on priority topics defined by regions, countries, and subject areas. The subject areas include transboundary water resources, renewable energy, fisheries, biodiversity, and others. Applicants must be based at academic institutions, non-profit organizations, or government-managed research laboratories, centers, or institutes in eligible countries. Applicants need to have at least one research partner in the U.S. that has grant funding from the U.S. government. Awards for single institutions are anticipated to range from US$40 thousand to US$80 thousand per year for one to three years. Multiple-institution awards may range from US$80 thousand to US$100 thousand per year for up to three years. The deadline for pre-proposals is 15 January 2016.
