OSRA Research Grant
The goal of OSRA is to encourage basic and applied research aimed at developing a knowledge base on Arab families, including comparative and policy oriented research. It aims to (1) support high quality empirical work that advances research on Arab families; (2) provide policymakers with evidence-based research and analysis that encourages the formation and/or modification of family-related policies; (3) develop research capacity on issues related to the Arab family; (4) develop research areas in support of the Qatar National Research Strategy (QNRS).
The grant awards each proposal team up to US $50, 000 for a maximum period of one year. Grants will be made to the most innovative ideas received and selected through a competitive peer review process– and will be divided among the investigators/institutions comprising collaborative teams.
