The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) are accepting research proposals for their joint Spring 2012 Grant Program, with grants ranging in value from $25,000 to $250,000.

Deadline for proposals:  June 14, 2012

In this round, CIGI and INET are primarily seeking to support research that is focused on four broad themes that are complementary to the organizations’ other activities and forthcoming research programs.

The four key areas of research are:

  • financial instability and macroeconomic management;
  • the political economy of income and wealth distribution and inequality dynamics;
  • governance of the international monetary and financial systems; and
  • innovation.

While these are the key areas in which proposals will be funded, CIGI and INET will give due consideration to any proposal that is consistent with our mission of furthering new economic thinking.

Grant proposals are due by June 14, 2012. A research jury will review first stage applications and in early August will issue invitations for those with the most promising proposals to submit complete applications by early September 2012. Grants will be awarded by early November 2012.
