As part of Azim Premji University’s efforts to strengthen and elevate the state of understanding of societal processes and outcomes, the university is launching the fifth round of our Research Funding Program.
This program is designed to promote inquiry into areas of particular interest to the Azim Premji Foundation and to explore possible responses for some of them.
The Research Funding Programme is designed to strengthen and supplement our existing efforts in these areas. While we are open to any broad consideration within an area, the research should be empirically grounded, and be able to inform practice and policy.
We invite high-quality research proposals that examine the significant questions of public concern in the following areas:
- Education and Allied Areas
- Labour, Livelihoods, and Employment
- Urban Governance and Sustainability
- Local Democracy
- Climate Change Action
Research funding of INR 5-20 Lacs will be provided depending on the domain.
Who can Apply?
Applications are invited from individuals or teams affiliated with centers of vital research within academic institutions, non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, as well as the Government, in principle. We encourage scholars and researchers in the fields of education, development practice, public policy, economics, political science, sociology, anthropology, history, creative arts, media, and the sciences to submit proposals.
This call for proposals is for researchers external to Azim Premji Foundation. Employees of the Azim Premji Foundation are not eligible to apply.
