Maybe Bill Gates can help. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is accepting grant proposals for the third round of its Grand Challenges Explorations initiative, a $100 million program to help scientists “pursue innovative ideas” to address major global health problems.


A missive from the Foundation says that “initial grants will be $100,000 each, and projects showing promise may have the opportunity to receive additional funding of $1 million or more.”


You can apply online at until May 28, 2009. That web address is also where you will find descriptions of the topics and application instructions.
