The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals (RFP) to increase the success of Native American students in Washington State and the greater Portland, Oregon area.

 Please note that the foundation’s new submission process requires applicants to complete the foundation’s RFP template which can be downloaded through our online grant application tool, Unison: If you have technical questions about the proposal submission process, please contact Nelson Khov at

Program Officer LiLi Liu is responsible for managing the application process and grant investments but will not be able to provide individual guidance on program content due to the high volume of requests, as well as to ensure an unbiased selection process.
