About the Organization:

Azim Premji Foundation is a not-for profit organisation that has been working since 2000 with the elementary education system in rural government schools. The Foundation began by implementing various programmes to improve educational quality across the country. By 2010 however it became clear that working on a “project” mode was inadequate and it takes continuous effort over many decades for any deep-rooted change to happen. The primary goal of the Foundation is to contribute to a society that is “a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society” as envisaged in the Constitution of India. Towards this goal, we have identified education as a critical area that has direct impact on the economic, social and cultural development of the nation.

Research Funding Program 2020

As part of Azim Premji University’s efforts to strengthen and elevate the state of understanding of societal processes and outcomes, they are launching the fifth round of their Research Funding Programme. This programme is designed to promote inquiry into areas of particular interest to Azim Premji Foundation and to explore possible responses for some of them.

The Research Funding Programme is designed to strengthen and supplement their existing efforts in these areas. While they are open to any broad consideration within an area, the research should be empirically grounded, and be able to inform practice and policy.

They invite high-quality research proposals that examine the significant questions of public concern in the following areas:

  • Education and Allied Areas
  • Labour, Livelihoods and Employment
  • Urban Governance and Sustainability
  • Local Democracy
  • Climate Change Action

Who can apply

  • Applications are invited from individuals or teams affiliated with centres of vital research within academic institutions, non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, as well as the Government, in principle. They encourage scholars and researchers in the fields of education, development practice, public policy, economics, political science, sociology, anthropology, history, creative arts, media and the sciences to submit proposals.
  • This call for proposals is for researchers external to Azim Premji Foundation. Employees of Azim Premji Foundation are not eligible to apply.

Funding: Research funding of INR 5-20 Lacs will be provided depending on the domain
