APPLY NOW!

The Global Development Awards and Medals Competition is an innovative award scheme launched by GDN, with generous support from the Ministry of Finance, Government of Japan, and other donors. Since its inception in 2000, GDN has awarded roughly US$ 2.2 million in research and travel grants to finalists and winners. Winners are chosen by an eminent jury at GDN’s Annual Global Development Conference; an event attended by over 500 practitioners in the field of development to whom the finalists present their proposals/papers.

The competition is held in three categories. Currently, GDN is accepting applications only for the Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development Project (MIDP).

Category 1: Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development Project (MIDP): The Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development Project (MIDP) is a competitive grant program that provides development practitioners the opportunity to compete for grants worth US$ 30,000 to help scale up their innovative project*. The grants are awarded to projects and/or organizations that are carrying out original and path-breaking work in the development field and meet certain set criteria (see below). These projects are not theme based. However, the projects need to contribute to sustainable development.

First Prize: US$ 30,000; Second Prize: US$ 5,000

*The first prize winner is also eligible to compete under the Japan Social Development Fund for an additional grant of up to US$ 200,000 for their work.
