Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) is a flagship program which began at USAID in October 2010 to provide grant funds for innovative ideas. Through this open project, USAID is able to locate and attract innovators from across the globe with ideas that could radically reshape the landscape of development ventures. From students to tenured faculty, international NGO’s to development economists, anyone is eligible to apply for a grant. Innovation is a key topic in Administrator Shah’s Fall Semester message to university students this year and many of those young people will go on to solve our world’s development challenges, some with support from USAID and DIV. Learn more about DIV and how you can apply.
Also check out the #FallSemester page to learn more about how to engage with Administrator Shah during campus visits or via online web-chats.
