Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations for programs that advance environmental sustainability and support the health of young people. The purpose of the program is to support programs that combat climate change and programs that reduce risk factors of non-communicable diseases amongst young people.

The Step Up! Global Grants Programme, provided by AstraZeneca’s Young Health Programme, empowers small, youth-focused non-profit organizations to make change happen by enabling them to increase their impact and operate at a greater scale. Step Up! provides grants to support organizations to develop and deliver effective health promotion programs – with an emphasis on under-resourced communities in low- and middle-income countries.

Climate change and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are two defining challenges of the 21st century, each posing significant threats to health and sustainable development. Innovation is needed in order to face up the climate and health challenges facing young people today. This year, the program is looking to support projects which promote environmental sustainability while at the same time reducing NCD risk factors among young people.

Projects should:

  • Reduce NCD risk factors for young people while combating climate change through sustainable environmental solutions
  • Address the needs of vulnerable young people (10-30 years old) in under-resourced communities
  • Reach an appropriate number of young people according to the scale of the local need
  • Can provide evidence at the conclusion of the project of what has been delivered, as well as outcomes and what has been learned

Step Up! always receives a high number of applications and they are unable to support all eligible organizations which apply. In selecting applications, they will prioritize a project if it:

  • Addresses nutrition
  • Utilizes technology or digital health solutions in an inclusive way
  • Is innovative: delivering something different from which we can learn (an existing approach in a new setting linked to a particular need, or a totally new approach)
  • Is youth-led (ie primarily youth managed/designed)
  • Involves young people as advocates for change in their communities
  • Is run by an organization with an income and capacity to deliver a grant of this size
  • Is from an organization that has not yet been supported by a StepUp! grant
  • Operates in a low or lower-middle-income country or setting

Step Up! will select projects at a range of different innovation stages.
