About Paula Kantor Award

Dr. Kantor’s work was largely driven by her desire and passion to improve lives in the Global South, especially those of women and girls.

She was a prolific researcher who participated in and worked with several initiatives to better the lives and improve the livelihoods of women in conflict-prone and terrorist-affected areas. She worked across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

In the spirit of Paula’s legacy of supporting applied research to advance the economic and social well-being of women in low-income and otherwise marginalized communities worldwide, this annual award is given to a young professional female researcher from the Global South doing field research related to ICRW’s mission, along with a US$2,500 cash prize.

The recipient of the award will also have the ability to present in front of an esteemed global audience, comprising those in the development, business, NGO, and government sectors – and will receive opportunities to promote their research on and across our social media channels.

The selection jury for the Paula Kantor Award for Excellence in Field Research will be made up of distinguished professionals in the development, gender, academic, policy, and research sectors.
