Closing Date: April 15,2013.

The OCHA Policy Development and Studies Branch invites applications to its 2013 Humanitarian Research and Innovation Grant Programme. The programme encourages and enables original research and writing on issues and trends relating to humanitarian needs and response.

All research projects must be completed within six months and result in a 20 to 40-page paper and a possible presentation at an OCHA policy forum. The final papers will be published on the OCHA website.
Field research in countries with humanitarian response activities is strongly encouraged.

The maximum grant payable under this programme is US$4,000. The exact disbursement will be determined by the nature of the work and the number of selected projects.

The programme is open to people of any nationality who are interested in improving humanitarian assistance. Applicants should either have relevant academic credentials, such as an MA or a PhD, be currently enrolled in an advanced degree programme or have work experience relevant to their proposal. Applicants proposing field research are generally expected to be residents of that country or to have extensive experience working in that context, as well as relevant language skills. Organizations are not eligible to apply.
