Application Deadline: January 30, 2015


The Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF) is a multi-donor trust fund at the World Bank promoting evidence
-based policy making in areas critical for human development.

The Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF), a partnership program promoting evidence-based policy making in human development, is very pleased to announce two new calls for impact evaluation research proposals.

Applicants Eligibility:

  • Impact evaluation research teams from around the world are eligible. No prior affiliation with the World Bank or SIEF’s funding organizations is needed.
  • However, to submit an application, the impact evaluation team must partner with a World Bank staff member who will, if the application is successful, manage the SIEF grant and provide fiduciary responsibility.
  • The World Bank staff member can also act as an investigator on the project and support policy outreach.
  • The application must be submitted electronically by the partnering World Bank staff member (TTL).

Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund is looking for proposals in

(1) early childhood development, with a focus on promoting the cognitive and socio-emotional development of children ages 3-6, and

(2) effectively engaging non-state actors in basic education.

The application process is a two-step process.

The first stage requires completing the online SIEF Application Form and submitting a completed Evaluation Budget Template by email by 6:00 P.M. (EST) January 30, 2015.

Detailed information on the calls is available below. Selected proposals will have the opportunity to receive seed funding up to US$25,000 to develop a full technical proposal for the impact evaluation. Selection in this round is not a guarantee of funding beyond the seed funding.  All technical proposals will also undergo a careful peer review.

These calls are being funded through the British Government’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the London-based Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), which focuses on promoting early childhood development and evidence-based solutions.
