Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 19 November 2017

The Aegis Trust has launched a fourth call for proposals by Rwandan researchers, as part of its Research, Policy and Higher Education (RPHE) programme funded by Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).

  • Gender dimensions of post-genocide recovery
  • Post-genocide economic development
  • Education, media and peacebuilding (with an emphasis on Peace education)

Grant Information

  • Each successful proposal will receive the Rwandan Francs equivalent of 2500 British pounds (before tax) to be used for researchers’ remuneration and other costs associated with conducting the research (£1750 will be paid upfront and £750 upon production of the outputs detailed below).
  • The amount paid for each research paper will be the same, regardless of the number of co-authors.
