WGAPE 2022 Small Research Grants Request for Proposals

The Working Group in African Political Economy (WGAPE) is pleased to announce a Small Grant Program for junior African researchers to explore a question of interest in African political economy.

Funding can be used to support the investigators’ time, research assistance, survey or other data collection costs, data purchase or storage, travel, and other reasonable research expenses. Indirect Costs are not permissible for these grants.

They invite submissions that reflect WGAPE’s broad research agenda on the political economy of African development, including ethnic politics, civil conflict and violence, decentralization and democratization, corruption, local governance, public economics, and other related topics. Successful proposals will include a quantitative, empirical component.

Research that is purely theoretical or qualitative will not be funded under this RFP; however, mixed-methods research designs will be accepted.

Eligibility:

  • Eligibility is restricted to junior African scholars, who are pre-PhD, in a Ph.D. program, or within five years of receiving their Ph.D. This refers to individuals who are (a) currently studying at a university or research institute in Africa, and/or b) currently teaching at an African university or research institute.
  • Junior African scholars collaborating with scholars based outside of Africa are eligible to apply for this grant.
  • Unaffiliated researchers (i.e., those who do not study, teach, or conduct research at a university, international institution, center, or government department) are not eligible to apply.

Grant size: $6,000 – $9,000 USD

Deadline: October 15th, 2022
