Call for Research Proposals: 2022 UPCWGS Research Grant

[NOTE: The deadline for submission of research proposals for the 2022 UPCWGS Research Grant is extended until 1 May 2022.]

The University of the Philippines Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS) is now accepting proposals for its 2022 UPCWGS Research Grant. The grant seeks to fund cutting-edge research on women and gender in the Philippines and the ASEAN region. Due to the ongoing restrictions and risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we will prioritize research that will use digital research methods or hybrid methods for data gathering.

The UPCWGS will award funding of up to PhP110,000 to seven (7) research projects on women and gender in the Philippines and the ASEAN region. Project duration should be within a six-month period with the start date on 1 July 2022. One of the project proponents should be currently affiliated with the University of the Philippines.

Proposals should follow the format indicated in the PROJECT PROPOSAL TEMPLATE (https://tinyurl.com/UPCWGSprojeprop) and use this CHECKLIST (https://tinyurl.com/UPCWGSchecklist) for formulating their budget. Submissions should also include a proof of application for an ethics clearance if research poses more than minimal risk* to human participants (in health and development research).

Please email your proposals to [email protected]up.edu.ph, with “2022 UPCWGS RESEARCH GRANT” in the subject line, by 15 April 2022.

*A risk is minimal when the probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort anticipated in the proposed research are not greater, in and of themselves, than those ordinarily encountered in daily life or during the performance of routine physical or psychological examinations or tests (National Ethical Guidelines for Health Research 2011).
