INGSA Associate Grants

The International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) is a collaborative platform for policy makers, practitioners, national academies, and academics to share experience, build capacity and develop theoretical and practical approaches to the use of scientific evidence in informing policy at all levels of government.

In line with this mission, INGSA offers professional development and research grants to support early-to-mid career researchers or policy practitioners in Low and Middle Income Countries. Each grant recipient is expected to manage and conduct a project that explores or advances the understanding or practice of science advice in the region. 

Grants are made possible through a partnership with the International Development Research Centre (IDRC).

2021-2022 INGSA Knowledge Associates

Covid-19 highlighted the critical nexus of evidence-into-policy.

To respond to this, INGSA and IDRC have provided 18-month grants to enable INGSA Knowledge Associates to undertake deep-dive case studies on their country’s use of evidence in policy decisions related to Covid-19. Six Knowledge Associates from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean were selected.
