The research project is generously supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Government of France, and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
Why should you apply?
The research grant will provide a unique opportunity to undertake collaborative research on one of the least researched areas in social science.
6 to 7 successful applications will be entitled to a grant of up to US$ 43,000 depending on the scope of the study.
The winning research teams will also benefit from intensive technical support and networking opportunities throughout the grant performance period, from inception to completion.
Your studies could feed into important research policy debates and reforms with the goal of facilitating a more conducive research environment for high quality, policy relevant research around the world
