ESRC-DFID Raising Learning Outcomes in Education Systems Research Programme

ESRC and DFID are pleased to announce the third funding call under the Raising Learning Outcomes in Education Systems Research Programme.

This £20 million programme is generating world-class cutting-edge social science research that addresses key questions on learning outcomes within education systems in developing countries. The aim is to provide policymakers and practitioners with concrete ideas on how to improve learning, and understanding of how these will translate to their specific contexts and institutions. Funding is being awarded through three annual calls, each with a different but complementary thematic focus.

The call is focused on the theme of ‘Accountability’ and the core question - how do accountability relationships and processes within developing country education systems enable or inhibit the raising of learning outcomes?

A total of up to £6.5 million is being made available for proposals to this call. Proposals are invited for projects with a full economic cost (fEC) value of between £200,000 and £700,000. Proposals outside this value range will not be accepted. 

This budget limit refers to the total cost of the project, not the contribution paid by the ESRC and DFID. Projects may be from one year up to a maximum of four years in duration.

Proposals are sought from across the social sciences and may be for fundamental or more applied research topics, as long as the policy relevance is clearly articulated. 

There are no geographic restrictions on who may apply for this funding opportunity: researchers from developing and developed countries can work together in any configuration of their choosing, and principal investigators can be from anywhere in the world. 
Proposals which are not deemed to be within the scope of the call will be rejected.
