ICLD’s Fieldwork Grant is a programme for master’s students in Sweden. The aim of the programme is to provide an opportunity for students to conduct fieldwork in one of ICLD’s countries of cooperation. The thesis topic must have a strong connection to local democracy. Students may apply for a maximum of 22,000 SEK to conduct fieldwork for at least 5 weeks in a low- or middle-income country.
Priority is given to students conducting fieldwork in ICLD’s partner countries. However, projects in other countries are welcomed if they show an important contribution to the field of local democracy and relevance to local governments in ICLD’s partner countries. ICLD’s priority countries are: Botswana, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, Guatemala, Kenya, Kosovo, Serbia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Ukraine, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Applications for fieldwork 2024 is now closed. The next round of applications opens September, 2024.

ICLD’s mission is to support democratic participation and change at the local level. With its focus on local democracy, local self-governance and decentralisation, ICLD strengthens local governments’ capacity to analyse, prioritize and implement Agenda 2030 in accordance with their own needs, priorities and resources. The unique combination of practice and theory is a major asset of ICLD. More about ICLD
