The Human Trafficking Research Initiative (HTRI) invites proposals from researchers and organizations that intend to design and carry out studies on how to reduce human trafficking or respond to the needs of human trafficking victims but need some additional time and support to push the research project to the next stage. We expect to fund a total of six to nine proposals from research teams interested in expanding the evidence to further investigate this important topic. This document outlines the proposal guidelines and required application materials in detail. You can also learn more on our HTRI Competitive Fund page.
Please click the orange "Download" button on the right-hand side of this page to review the entire Application Guidelines.
A completed proposal consists of: (1) a completed application form; (2) a detailed budget; (3) CVs of researchers; and (4) if applicable, letters of support from implementing partners. Please submit all materials through our online portal, here, before midnight, US Eastern Standard Time, on March 11, 2022.
Please contact the HTRI team with any questions.
