AWARDS: 2011 Global Development Awards and Medals Competition
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 Conference; an event attended by over 500 practitioners in the field of development to whom the finalists present their proposals/papers.
The competition accepts applications in three categories:
- Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development Project (MIDP)
- Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development (ORD)
- Medals for Research on Development (Medals)
Deadline: January 31, 2012
