Call for Concept Notes: Knowledge and innovation for education in emergencies and fragile, conflict and violence-affected contexts

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX), a joint endeavour with Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity through its latest call for concept notes.

Knowledge and innovation for education in emergencies and fragile, conflict and violence-affected contexts

This call is seeking concept notes for applied research projects to generate and mobilize evidence to contextualize and scale the impact of promising or proven innovative approaches to address challenges of children’s access and retention for education in emergencies and fragile, conflict and violence-affected contexts in GPE partner countries. 

This call involves a two-stage process starting with a submission of concept notes in the first stage, followed by full proposal submissions by shortlisted applicants.   

A recent scoping study identified two interrelated sub-themes as priorities:  

  • Access or re-entry for out-of-school children and retention of at-risk learners 
  • Teacher training and support for work with out-of-school and at-risk children 

Selected proposals will be awarded grants between CA $300,000 – CA $1,000,000, depending on the type of grant. Full details of grant types and eligibility criteria are outlined in the detailed call document.

You can also register here for the FAQ Webinar for this call taking place from 7:30-8:30am EDT on April 4, 2024.

If you know of anyone that might be interested in this funding opportunity, please feel free to share this information with them. 

The deadline to submit proposals to each of these calls is April 25, 2024 at 11:59 pm EDT. 

Please note that the EMAP Hub is not involved in the selection process for this grant. Any questions should be directed to kixcalls@idrc.ca.
