The Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) is pleased to announce a second 2022 Digital Credit Observatory (DCO) Data Privacy Request for Proposals, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The DCO has has $250k to allocate towards data privacy research over the next two years, which we anticipate using to fund a total of 3-5 projects. This RFP is focused on funding original research on questions related to data privacy in the context of digital financial services (DFS) in low- and middle-income countries. Our primary interest is in funding technical proposals that investigate how privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) can be applied to digital services in LMICs. We may also fund compelling theoretical and qualitative proposals that seek to rigorously document and understand concerns regarding data privacy and identify ways to enhance data privacy protections in LMICs. While we do not have a particular disciplinary preference, the proposal must focus on data privacy, and it must have a specific focus or relevance to LMIC contexts.
Below, we’ve provided examples of the types of projects and research questions that we are most interested in. If you are unsure whether your proposal falls within the scope of this RFP, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for feedback.
To apply, please use our online Submittable portal to complete a brief series of questions about your project and upload a PDF of your proposal narrative and budget. Please see the full Request for Proposals for details about the application process. If you have any questions or concerns, you can review the Resources & FAQs for DCO Proposals document or contact our staff team at email@example.com with any questions.
Deadline for Proposals: Friday, April 28, 2023 at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.
