For Researchers

“If you’re a new researcher wanting to break into the RCT world, how can you get funding? Partner with an established organization with strong quality control like IPA.”

Joost de Laat, Professor of Economics and Director, Utrecht University, Centre for Global Challenges

Researchers looking for the highest-quality research support, coupled with local knowledge and policy relationships, partner with IPA. We are looking to engage researchers who want to push the boundaries of innovation and/or bridge research and action at scale.

  • Connect researchers with implementing partners (and vice versa)
  • Help identify funding opportunities
  • Assist with design and feasibility conversations
  • Lead field and survey teams to timely and cost-effective survey completion
  • Lead and/or support communications and meetings with implementing partners
  • Link researchers to IPA research quality standards and other resources
  • Support proposal narratives and budget creation
  • Manage grant and financial reporting
  • Promote and disseminate results
