    Call for Concept Papers (CCP) for Voter Education Innovation Grant Competition in Nigeria


    The purpose of this Call for Concept Papers (CCP) is to invite eligible Nigerian organization(s) to submit a detailed concept for a project that will pilot an innovative voter education initiative in one
    of Nigeria’s six geo-political zones. This CCP provides prospective organizations with the relevant operational and performance requirements for the concept paper process. IFES will subsequently
    invite the organizations with the strongest concepts from each geopolitical zone to participate in a full Request for Applications (RFA) process that includes a presentation-based, “Dragon’s Den”-style
    competition. IFES anticipates issuing a total of six awards at the end of this two-stage process – one voter education grant for each of Nigeria’s six geo-political zones.


    Locally registered Nigerian disabled persons organizations (DPOs), civil society organizations(CSOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community based organizations (CBOs), non-political
    party organizations or other similar not-for-profit institutions are invited to apply. If a DPO, CSO, or NGO is not locally registered, a signed letter stating the reason why must be included as part of the
    application. Participating organizations must have been formally established and registered for at least two years (with proof of registration with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria).
    Individuals and the following organizations are not eligible to access funding:

    • Governmental and semi-governmental institutions
    • International organizations / organizations headquartered or registered outside of Nigeria
    • Political parties or organizations affiliated with or engaging in partisan activities
    • Organizations running on a for-profit basis

    The concept must make a convincing case for how the applicant organization can realistically and effectively implement the pilot concept within the anticipated timeframe of August – February 2023
    and the grant ceiling of NGN 8,000,000. Successful concepts should address the following elements:

    • An innovative, feasible idea for leveraging technologies and/or methodologies not currently being used for voter education in Nigeria
    • A clear statement of the specific problem / need in voter education and engagement that the concept will address
    • Strong and substantial focus on how the concept will more effectively promote the voter education and engagement of women, youth, persons with disabilities and/or internally displaced persons
    • Ideas that have been implemented in other settings with demonstrably effective results
    • Specific consideration of the context and needs in the given geopolitical zone
    • Clear consideration of the principles of do not harm / conflict sensitivity
    • Realistic planning for implementation within budget and long-term sustainability
    • The concept must make a convincing case for how it will contribute to the following outcomes:
    • Increased voter understanding of key election information in the 2023 General Elections
    • Increased participation of women, youth, persons with disabilities and/or internally displaced persons in the 2023 General Elections process
    • Preparation for sustainable, independent implementation of the VE initiative after the 2023 General Elections
