International Policy Ideas Challenge 2020

International Policy Ideas Challenge 2020 Deadline: 2020-04-17
Award: $30,000 CAD
Open to: Canadian Graduate Students*

The objective of the program is to draw on the network of talented Canadian graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early-career civil society researchers to identify concrete, innovative solutions to emerging international policy challenges faced by Canada.

The program offers applicants a chance to test their skills at translating academic expertise into policy language and insights. Applicants are invited to submit brief proposals. Ten winners will be given several months to consult with Global Affairs Canada “client” divisions and further develop their proposals into longer policy briefs, which will then be presented to Government of Canada officials in a day-long Ideas Symposium, hosted by Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa in late Fall 2020.

Ten winning proposals will receive $3,000 each (regardless of whether the proposal is submitted by an individual or a team). The award will be provided upon the submission of the final brief and formal presentation at Global Affairs Canada.

* Details may apply. See contest website to confirm eligibility.
