What we fund

The IGC issues a regular call for proposals. The current call for proposals is closed, but details on future calls will be published soon.

Please sign up below to receive updates on upcoming research funding opportunities. You can also follow the IGC on TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn.

In the past, we have received an average of 246 proposals and have funded 67 (27%) of them for each call for proposals.

Applications that are in line with IGC research priorities, empirically rigorous, advance our knowledge about inclusive growth policy and have strong value for money are favoured. While there is no set guideline for funding amount, the IGC generally approves projects in the £5,000 – £150,000 window. The average value commissioned is about £50,000.

The IGC will not fund projects that are a) purely qualitative, b) not grounded in sound economics research principles, or c) relevant only to middle- or high income countries. Please use the drop downs below to view details on the projects IGC funded through its last call for proposals.
