CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Fundación WWB Colombia Research Fund (Women’s World Banking Network)
Fieldwork Grants Programme
Fundación WWB Colombia’s strategic planning for 2017-2020 proposes for its fourth goal to “support research projects that enable the identification of challenges and opportunities for women entrepreneurs in Colombia.” One of the mechanisms for the achievement of this goal is the creation and development of a research fund. With this goal in mind, Fundación WWB Colombia presents the second call (version II-2018) for the funding of research projects, for a total of COP $895,000,000. Through this action, the Foundation affirms its commitment to building the necessary knowledge for social change that promotes higher levels of inclusion in democratic societies.
For this second version of the call, we propose as its main goal to promote research projects that propose the study of the dynamics, tensions, ideas, relations, conflicts, challenges, and opportunities for entrepreneurship led by or with the participation of women in rural contexts.
Fundación WWB Colombia Research Fund
A total of 15 research grants will be allocated. The funding is available for research, social innovation, and technological development projects focusing on contexts for rural entrepreneurship in relation to women’s empowerment.
This call is aimed at supporting dissertation projects of MA or PhD students of any nationality as well as research projects of research groups from any country which field sites are located in Valle del Cauca and Cauca, Colombia, as well as other field sites in Colombia or/and abroad in the case of comparative research projects.
