IPA is soliciting proposals for a small grant fund that is part of our researcher diversification initiative. The fund targets African researchers in Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, and Kenya to facilitate the development of researchers starting their careers as independent investigators in Africa. This call for proposals will result in the selection of one to two projects for each of the countries indicated, to be implemented by the successful PIs in collaboration with IPA Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, and Kenya. Funding of 10,000 USD will be awarded to each project.

Call for Proposals | Displaced Livelihoods Initiative | Round III

Submission Deadline: Expressions of interest are due May 24, 2024, and full proposals are due July 26, 2024.

Displacement is at an all-time high and is projected to climb in the coming decades. There is limited rigorous evidence, however, about how to best respond to displacement and strengthen outcomes for displaced and host communities. What is more, even when effective programs and policies are identified and evaluated, decision-makers often struggle to determine how to use that evidence for impact at scale. IPA and J-PAL are actively working to fill these evidence-to-policy-and-practice gaps. Through the Displaced Livelihoods Initiative (DLI), supported by the IKEA Foundation, IPA and J-PAL supports rigorous impact evaluations, pilots, exploratory studies, infrastructure and public goods projects, and scaling work to inform policies and programs on sustainable livelihoods for displaced populations and host communities. If you have any questions, please contact
