Dear Researcher,

Do you have a research question on ‘Urbanization and Development’ you want to explore but are short of funds for?

Here is your chance to receive grants of up to US$ 30,000 to pursue your academic quest.

And it does not stop there! The Global Development Network (GDN) is also giving you the opportunity to get up to US$ 10,000 in recognition of the quality of your completed research under this topic.

GDN promotes superior research through the Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development for innovative research proposals and it’s Medals for Research on Development for quality research papers. A second prize of US$ 5,000 is awarded in the two categories as well.

In addition, the finalists will be given a chance to present their work before an international high profile audience in development research at the 13th Global Development Conference scheduled to be held in June 2012. Their travel and stay will be funded by GDN.

This year, our focus is on Urbanization and Development. Entries should be specific to the following themes:

  • The Interactive Economy and Urban Development
  • Urban Externalities (Contagious Disease, Congestion and Crime) and Urban Poverty
