Deadline extension: International Policy Ideas Challenge 2020

This message is an update of the original “call for proposals” message sent out on March 11.

International Policy Ideas Challenge 2020

The objective of the International Policy Ideas Challenge 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.  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.

NEW application deadline: May 15, 2020 (was April 17)

For more information, including eligibility requirements and application procedures, please see the webpage: https://www.international.gc.ca/world-monde/study_work_travel-etude_travail_voyage/proposals-2020-propositions.aspx?lang…

Note: This award is externally administered by SSHRC and Global Affairs Canada, so questions should be directed to: IPIC-CIPI.POR@international.gc.ca.
