Awards by Year

In 2014, the SVRI Grant was established to fund research focusing on violence against women (VAW). The grant’s success led the SVRI to partner with the World Bank Group in 2016 on the Development Marketplace Award for Innovation in the Prevention and Response of VAW and VAC.

SVRI grant-making has enabled the support and funding of 50 innovative research projects in 30 countries, infusing more than $5 million USD into the field of VAW and VAC research. The SVRI is proud to issue grants to unique projects that might not otherwise have received funding, such as secondary data analysis, adding in qualitative questions or an additional arm to a study or research on methods. In funding a broad range of methodologies, the SVRI is contributing to the technical development of the field of VAW and VAC research.
