ALIGN micro-grants funds

The ALIGN micro-granting facility is a responsive research fund. The micro-grants are intended to respond to knowledge gaps by supporting the development of new research, learning and reflection materials, and knowledge on discriminatory and harmful gender norms, to inform policy and practice outputs.

All open calls of interest for funding will be detailed on this page as well as information about previous funding rounds. 

Open call for funding

There are no open calls for funding at this time. Please check back later or follow ALIGN on X (formerly Twitter) or LinkedIn for the latest updates.


Ongoing funded research

Three rounds of funded research are currently underway focusing on:

  • Gender norms and women’s participation, voice and agency in sub-national and local politics
  • Gender-equitable education
  • Social media and norms of masculinity

More details will follow in 2024 about these award-winners and their research.
