50x2030 launches data use grant competition for researchers in Cambodia, Ethiopia, Uganda, Georgia, Senegal

The 50x2030 Initiative is sponsoring a competition for novel research projects that use 50x2030 data. Small grants – from US$1,000-$10,000 – will be issued for projects that employ 50x2030 survey data to generate practical research that can be applied to national policymaking, program (re)design or investment decisions. The Initiative will then feature outputs of the supported research at a virtual conference in November 2021 and through other outlets. Local researchers in five partner countries-- Cambodia, Ethiopia, Uganda, Georgia and Senegal– will be eligible to apply.
