The Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX), a joint endeavor of the International Development Research Centre and the Global Partnership for Education, invite proposals for applied research projects to generate and mobilize evidence in support of contextualizing and scaling the impact of innovative approaches to strengthen gender-responsive and socially inclusive education and safe schooling experiences for all children, especially those facing multiple forms of gender inequalities and marginalization, in GPE partner countries.
Responding to shared policy priorities of GPE partner countries, the objectives of the call are threefold:
- Generate evidence about how to scale the impact of innovative approaches to address challenges of gender equality and social inclusion at school.
- Strengthen the capacities of relevant stakeholders to use that knowledge and innovation.
- Mobilize the evidence developed to improve policy and practice in education systems.
Selected proposals will be awarded grants between CA $300,000 – CA$2,500,000, depending on the type of grant. Full details of grant types and eligibility criteria are outlined in the call document.
The deadline to submit proposals is August 28, 2023.
