The Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development (ORD) is a competitive research grant program that identifies and funds outstanding research proposals that have a high potential for excellence in research and clear policy implications for addressing development issues. Applicants receive expert feedback from junior and later senior researchers.

It 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 2023 edition of the Global Development Awards Competition theme is Nexus of Education, Development, and Human Security.

The funds will be used to support the research work proposed by the winners toward the completion of their research. Additionally, awardees will be paired with world-class academics in their area of work who will be Scientific and Technical Advisors.
