IDRC offers grants, funding, and awards to researchers and institutions to find solutions for global development challenges.

Through calls for research proposals, we fund projects that aim to foster climate-resilient food systems, global health, education and science, democratic and inclusive governance, and sustainable and inclusive economies in developing countries. Gender equality and inclusion are also central to our strategy and the research we support.

Browse our open calls and learn about the experiences of some of our past Research Awardees.
