The 2022 call for applications for the GYA Sasha Kagansky Interdisciplinary Grant is now open!
Applications should be submitted by Sunday, 3 July 2022.
This grant scheme, introduced at the GYA’s 2014 Annual General Meeting (AGM), seeks to support the development of small-scale, innovative, curiosity-driven, blue-sky, exploratory research pilots or prototypes that unite researchers in low/middle-income and high-income countries and cross-disciplinary boundaries. Each year, the GYA can grant up to 10,000 EUR to the selected project.
The GYA Activities Funding Review Committee is looking forward to receiving your applications. Project ideas should innovatively combine research questions from very different disciplines. There is no limit to your imagination and creativity. With this grant, we aim to provide start-up financing for daring yet promising research projects that demonstrate out-of-the-box thinking and therefore may have difficulties receiving funding under conventional grant schemes.
Previous applicants are welcome to resubmit their research proposals, if they have been updated and improved based on the recommendations of the review committee following the application.
Please note that the timeframe for carrying out an Interdisciplinary Grant project should be approx. one year (August 2022-August 2023) and may not extend beyond the end of 2023. Applicants must be GYA members at the time of application; GYA alumni may no longer apply.
Please read the general and budget management guidelines sent to members by e-mail before filling out the application form.
You can read about current and past funded projects on the GYA website.
