Call for Proposals: GPE KIX Applied Research Projects on Teaching and Early Learning

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX), a joint endeavour with Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), has announced two new funding opportunities through its latest calls for proposals.

Call #1: Knowledge and innovation for supporting teacher professional development, agency, and well-being

This call is seeking proposals for applied research projects to generate and mobilize evidence and strengthen the capacities of relevant stakeholders in support of contextualizing and scaling the impact of promising or proven innovative approaches to strengthen teacher professional development, agency, and well-being in GPE partner countries.

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

  • Improving the quality and scope of teacher education and development
  • Supporting teacher agency and well-being

Selected proposals will be awarded grants between CA $300,000 – CA $2,000,000, depending on the type of grant. Full details of grant types and eligibility criteria are outlined in the call document.
