IDRC International Doctoral Research Awards

IDRC International Doctoral Research Awards (IDRC-IDRA) are intended to build capacity and develop research skills in Canada and the Global South to improve the lives of people in the developing world.

The objective of the project is to strengthen the capacities of emerging researchers at Canadian universities, growing the cohort of researchers able to design, lead and carry out high quality research that contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals and specific development outcome areas of particular interest to IDRC.

This call for applications is open to Canadians, permanent residents of Canada, and citizens of developing countries pursuing doctoral studies at a Canadian university. Awards will cover the costs of field research conducted for a doctoral dissertation in one or more countries in the Global South.

The 2022 competition is now closed.
