GLD Short-term Research Grants

The Governance and Local Development Institute at the University of Gothenburg (GLD) is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of research fellowships for short-term research on Governance and Local Development.

Themes should relate to the GLD mission, for example:

  • Local governance challenges
  • Service delivery as it varies across local contexts
  • Relationship between state and non-state actors
  • Level of corruption and citizens’ perceptions of it 
  • How citizens solve disputes with officials, families, and friends and how state or non-state actors are involved 
  • Participation in local elections and political campaigns 
  • How security services are provided in transitional periods and/or under weak central states


  • Awards averaging 25,000 SEK will be offered biannually to support research projects related to critical governance issues.


  • Open to all scholars, regardless of any prior GLD affiliation.
  • Applicants should be interested in research on Governance and Local Development.


Interested candidates should send the following: 

  1. A proposal including a description of the project/research plan (not more than 5 pgs long), schedule of work, and detailed budget estimate.
    1. The budget estimate should be in SEK and must not include funding for the applicant(s) salary/salaries but may include funding for a research assistant salary or similar. Organisers do accept proposals for contributory funding (i.e., using the STG to fund part of a larger project), but awarding of funding is contingent upon the applicant receiving enough funding for the whole project.
  2. A current CV 
  3. A sample of previously written work in English (a published paper, conference paper, book chapter, etc.) 

Only applications in English will be considered.
