IGC Research Grants for PhD Students and Early-career Researchers

The IGC is pleased to announce a new call for proposals focused on PhD students and early-career researchers.

Researchers are invited to submit proposals for research projects relevant to promoting sustainable and inclusive growth in developing countries.

Early-career researchers must have five or less years of work experience post-PhD.

Awards will be capped at a maximum of £20,000.

What we work on

  • The IGC’s research focuses on sustainable growth policies in developing countries. Sustainable growth refers to countries developing their potential in an inclusive way that improves social, environmental, and economic well-being for all, including for future generations.
  • As countries turn their focus from the COVID-19 response to COVID-19 recovery, IGC is working with our partners in government, and more broadly, to put sustainable and inclusive growth at the core of ‘building back better’.

    It is increasingly clear that creating jobs, raising incomes and reducing poverty must go hand in hand with efforts to increase resilience to climate shocks and to accelerate the decarbonisation of energy supply and production to ensure that growth is truly sustainable.

    Adaptation to climate change is crucial to building resilience and lowering risk, whilst mitigation through low-carbon growth pathways is essential to ensuring the well-being of future generations.

  • We are particularly interested in projects that address these issues through one of our four themes (outlined below), all of which play a crucial role in building resilience and promoting sustainable growth.
  • Firms, trade, and productivity – Increasing productivity through structural changes in firms’ capabilities, the functioning of markets, and how firms interact with world markets. State effectiveness – Escaping fragility and improving the capabilities and effectiveness of states to deliver higher rates of sustainable growth.
  • Cities – Making cities more productive, sustainable, and inclusive while addressing the downsides of density.
  • Energy and environment – Improving access to reliable energy and developing strategies to mitigate and adapt to global and local externalities from energy consumption.

    Where we work

  • We have resident teams in 10 partner countries throughout Africa and South Asia, and flexible engagements in a few others. Country offices allow the IGC to sustain long-term policy engagement and help ensure our work is demand-led.
  • Our partner countries are Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, Mozambique, Myanmar, Pakistan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone & Liberia (one resident team covering both countries), and Uganda. Additionally, we engage in Tanzania, Sudan, and Zambia on a more flexible basis.

    Evaluation of proposals

    Proposals are evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Alignment with research strategy
  • Quality of research design
  • Policy impact
  • Academic impact
  • Engagement with local institutions, including IGC country teams
