For the STEG Small Research Grants 2023, proposals are being accepted. The Small Research Grants may be used to pay for data collection, research help, purchases, and even research stipends or buyouts of teaching positions.
For low- and middle-income nations, research may concentrate on broad systemic patterns and processes of structural transformation and growth in a comparative sense across time or geography, or on more specific subjects relating to one or more of the following six study themes:
- Data, measurement, and conceptual framing;
- Firms, frictions and spillovers, and industrial policy;
- Labour, home production, and structural transformation at the level of households;
- Agricultural productivity and sectoral gaps;
- Trade and spatial frictions;
- Political economy and public investment.
Grants can be between £10,000 and £25,000.
- Open to researchers all over the world.
- Principal investigators applying to SRG calls should currently have a PhD or be enrolled in a
PhD programme. In exceptional circumstances, they will consider applications submitted by
principal investigators who do not fit these criteria, however, they must be able to
demonstrate a history of high-quality academic and/or policy-relevant research.
- Although there are no formal qualification requirements for co-investigators, coinvestigators on STEG-funded projects usually have a PhD or are enrolled in a PhD
- The knowledge, expertise, and qualifications of the entire research team will be taken into
account when evaluating the proposal.
The application deadline is Tuesday, 3 January 2023 at 23:59 GMT. Applications received after this time
will be considered for the next SRG round.
Applicants are asked to submit their proposals, using the templates available at the bottom of the SRG &
