Graduate students from all backgrounds are invited to participate in the Advancing Development Goals Contest for Master students. Applicants are encouraged to provide solutions to crisis management issues. Winners will receive up to CHF 10,000 in prizes. The deadline is on Tuesday 22nd March 2021.

The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies is an institution of research and higher education dedicated to the study of world affairs, with a particular emphasis on the cross-cutting fields of international relations and development issues.

Submissions are evaluated by an interdisciplinary academic steering committee that will select three submissions per category to be published on the competition’s website and then reviewed by an independent jury of experts with academic, governmental and private sector backgrounds.

Five finalist teams, one team per continent, will be invited to an oral presentation in Geneva, where they will defend their ideas and answer questions from the jury and the public. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered.

The ADG contest distributes CHF 25,000 in monetary prizes. The winning project will be awarded CHF 10,000; the two teams in second place will receive CHF 5,000 each and the two teams in third place, CHF 2,500 each.
