The International initiative for Impact Evaluation, or 3ie, in partnership with the Canadian International Development Agency, United States Agency for International Development, and Millennium Challenge Corporation, is inviting proposals for systematic reviews that aim to strengthen the international development community’s capacity for evidence-based policymaking.
Applications in the areas of agriculture, infrastructure, business development, governance and education are welcome. 3ie has released a list of questions under each sector and will award one grant per question. It may not fund all the questions if insufficient proposals of adequate quality are received.
This is the fifth call for proposals under 3ie’s Systematic Reviews program. The average budget of studies financed under the previous call for proposals was $72,500. Costs will vary depending on factors including the scope of the review and the methods of synthesis employed. Reviews are expected to take approximately 12 months from granting the award to submission of the draft report.
Deadline for applications is August 31, 2012, 11.59 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). Successful teams will be notified in October 2012. Grant applications are accepted only through 3ie’s online grant application system and not via email. For more information, visit this link.
