Cambridge Global Challenges


The GCRF programme "Changing the Story: Building inclusive civil societies with, and for, young people in post-conflict countries" has launched a new funding scheme for Early Career Researchers (ECRs), supporting research that considers the relationship between young people and civil society organisations (CSO) in post-conflict countries.

As part of the programme’ s commitment to the professional development of ECRs working in this area, Changing The Story is running a Project Development Workshop, for ECRs interested in applying for a grant, to help build and strengthen new partnerships and develop innovative, multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects.

Event content

Over the course of the two-day workshop, participants will have a chance to help co-design the project call that will be issued shortly after the workshop. In the process they will be able to develop their own project ideas, receive critical feedback and insight from international peers and experts, learn from and support other projects currently in development, and build new networks through which to disseminate their work. When the workshop concludes, participants will have 5 weeks to submit their application to Changing The Story.


This opportunity is open to all ECRs based in or working with ODA-recipient countries where the legacy of past conflict continues to shape communities today. Attendance at the project development workshop is a pre-requisite for applying for the grant.

Level of funding

Travel and accommodation expenses to attend the Project Development Workshop will be covered by the programme.

The subsequent call for proposals is for ECR awards in the range of £15-30k.
