Funding opportunities with the IGC

The IGC aims to promote sustainable growth in developing countries by providing demand-led policy advice based on frontier research.

The IGC provides funding for high-quality, policy-relevant research on structural change and inclusive growth. We support cutting edge work that pushes academic research to new frontiers and responds to the needs of policymakers.

While we usually offer a wide range of funding opportunities for researchers, including our regular open call for proposals.
