3ie is pleased to announce its fourth Open Window grant round. Proposals are invited for impact evaluations of social and economic development interventions in
low and middle income countries. 3ie’s Open Window accepts proposals in any sector. Preference will be given to proposed studies that:
• Are impact evaluations of large-scale development interventions and/or have a high probability of influencing policy;
• Have a clear and close partnership with the implementing agency; and
• Are produced by developing country researchers/evaluators or through a partnership between developed and developing country
3ie hopes to make 6 to 10 awards of up to a total value of US$4 million under this Window. There is no maximum size for individual grants.
The window for the Expressions of Interest (EOI) will open on the 1stof June, 2012.
These one-page documents will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Notification of selection for the next phase will be given within 1-2 weeks of submission. If
selected, applicants can begin drafting the full application at the time of notification.
The final deadline for submitting EOIs is the 24th of June, 2012. If the EOI is selected for the next phase, the deadline for submitting the full proposal is the 6th
of August, 2012.
More information can be found in the ‘Instructions for Proposals’, ‘Principles for Impact Evaluation’ and from the OW4 FAQ on the 3ie website, which will be made
available on the 1stof June.
Any questions should be sent to Ms. Anita Sircar, Program Officer, OW4@3ieimpact.org.
