Scope

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and IDRC invite proposals for KIX Global Grants from individual organizations or groups of organizations for multi-region, multi-country projects that aim to develop, test, and apply ways to scale innovations that address key education issues.

The projects funded under these grants will:  

  • generate knowledge and evidence to support the adaptation of proven innovations to address key education priorities in GPE member countries; and
  • mobilize research and knowledge to support the scaling of these proven innovations. 

Projects funded through this global call must be multi-regional, involving at least three GPE member countries in at least two regions.

Projects must respond to the following question:

How can existing evidence-based and contextually relevant innovations that have a demonstrated impact be adapted and scaled to improve education access and quality within GPE member countries?

Projects must also focus on one or more of the following six thematic areas:

  • teaching and learning;
  • early childhood care and education;
  • equity and inclusion;
  • gender equality;
  • data systems; and
  • learning assessment systems.
