Sight and Life – Travel and Conference Grants for Research on Nutrition


Due to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreaks, Sight and Life has suspended travel grants until further notice!

Sight and Life has established a distinguished alliance consisting of academia, research partners, and funders working collectively to eliminate all forms of malnutrition. Together, we discover and implement sustainable solutions, grounded on solid scientific evidence, to improve the lives of those in most need. Our partnerships are based on the principles of mutual trust, transparency, accountability, and shared goals.

Sight and Life delivers value in the nutrition sphere by accelerating the translation of research to innovative solutions at scale. Our work begins with a profound understanding of the biological factors that influence the nutritional status, how to add nutrition value to food value chains, and ends with research on healthy choices for consumers. We translate our scientific knowledge to build sustainable business models and public-sector programs that deliver best possible strategies to communities.

  • Conference Grants

    Assistance for speakers and facilitators, and travel support.

    Sight and Life offers two types of conference grants – one for speakers and facilitators and another that is a travel support grant. Both are detailed below. If you believe you are an ideal candidate for one of these grants, we look forward to receiving your application.
