Mahidol University (MU), in collaboration with the Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies (IHRP) and Yangon School of Political Science (YSPS), has launched a grant awards opportunity for Myanmar social science or legal researchers interested in pursuing their research by either leading or collaborating in research projects contributing to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. This opportunity, called the HRER Programme, welcomes researchers with demonstrated potential and strong ambitions to conduct research of high quality.

The HRER Programme will support legal and social science researchers to strengthen their research skills with the purpose of fostering Myanmar-led research on health, culture, justice, economic well-being, and the environment related to the achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

This research programme interventions will support the participating researchers to develop strong research methodology skills through the provision of small research grants that will be supported by research training and close mentoring support by senior research mentors. The researchers will be supported in developing their ideas into full research projects that can later be suitable for publication in academic journals or as individual reports.

The researchers will receive research mentoring from an international or local academic working on similar thematic areas over a period of 10 to 11 months.
