The Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) is pleased to announce our Fall 2023 Development Economics Challenge Grants. CEGA is making available a total of $75,000 for this round of funding. We will offer two types of awards to support original research led by UC Berkeley PhD students:
(1) Travel grants up to $5,000 for scoping and/or short-term fieldwork;
(2) Seed grants up to $20,000 for extensive, longer-term projects.
Proposed research must involve rigorous evaluation of programs or policies designed to alleviate poverty and promote social or economic development in low- and middle- income countries. Grant funds may be used to cover travel and lodging, data collection or access, data analysis, and related activities. Grants may not be used for student payment.
