Applications are currently welcome for the Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development (ORD) 2022.
The Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development is a competitive research grant program under the umbrella of the Global Development Awards Competition (GDAC), administered by GDN, funded under the Policy and Human Resources Development Fund (PHRD) trust fund managed by the World Bank, and generously supported by the Ministry of Finance, Government of Japan.
This award program identifies and funds outstanding research proposals in low- or middle-income countries with high potential for excellence in research and clear policy implications for addressing development issues.
The 2022 edition of the Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development will introduce the Connector Grant which aims to stimulate international cooperation through the development of collaborative projects to support scale-up efforts with research-based evidence.
The Connector grant will be awarded to ORD grantees, based on a project developed in collaboration with the MIDP grantees who received the JSDF grant. This grant will support the award recipients’ collaborative efforts towards measuring and analyzing the scale-up impact, as well as enhance the robustness of their M&E activities.
- The first prize winner will receive a grant of US$ 30,000.
- The second-prize and third-prize winners will receive a grant of US$ 20,000 and US$ 10,000 respectively.
The Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development is only open to researchers from eligible countries who meet all the requirements for the project’s implementation. Also, the Global Development Network (GDN) strongly encourages female researchers to engage and apply.
