Do you stay up nights, thinking of ways to solve a development challenge?
If you are a researcher from a developing or transition country, or have started an NGO that has already demonstrated impact, but is looking for ways to scale up, you may be in luck!
Your idea could be the next winner of the Global Development Awards Competition 2016.
Every year, GDN awards $US 90,000 worth of grants to research proposals and innovative development projects as part of the Global Development Awards Competition. The awards are granted in two categories: the Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development and the Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development Project.
The proposals for the developing projects being accepted for the Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development Project are not based on any theme.
The Competition, administered by GDN and generously funded by the Government of Japan, will also offer grants and travel expenses to finalists to present their research and development project proposals at GDN's next conference in Peru in March 2016.
This year, the Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development is based on four research themes on the topics of Education:
- Skills for Tomorrow
- Public Finance and Public Policy
- Pedagogy, Technology and Institutions
- Research and Policy
