Data2X is pleased to announce a Big Data for Gender Challenge. Through this Challenge, we seek to catalyze innovative solutions to fill global gender data gaps on the well-being of women and girls.

Applicants may submit proposals for prizes of $100,000 or $50,000. Current doctoral students may apply for a $25,000 dissertation grant.

Research proposals will be accepted in two categories:

1) Projects using a combination of digital and conventional data sources to conduct gender analysis on a specific research question.

2) Projects that build practical tools to monitor the well-being of women and girls over time.

Project concept notes not exceeding 5 pages in length (excluding any supplementary materials) should be submitted by July 7, 2017.
