Deadline: Reach Alliance 2020-21 Recruitment Call
May 1, 2020 @ 11:59 pm
The Reach Alliance is recruiting for the 2020-21 cohort. Applications will be accepted from all current undergraduate and graduate students on a rolling basis until May 1st, 2020. The Reach Alliance began in 2015 at the University of Toronto as the Reach Project, a student-led, faculty-driven, multi-disciplinary research initiative dedicated to investigating the pathways to success for innovative development programs that are reaching the world’s most marginalized populations.
Inspired by the United Nations’ call to eliminate global poverty by 2030 as part of a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), our mission is to pursue the full achievement of the SDGs by equipping and empowering the next generation of global leaders to create knowledge and inspire action on reaching the hardest to reach.
Reach has developed a unique methodology to uncover how and why certain development programs are able to reach the world’s poorest of the poor. Research findings are presented at the annual Reach Symposium attended by leading thinkers, researchers and practitioners from the public, private and civil society sectors. Findings have appeared in prominent journals.
The Reach Alliance is housed at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy with support from the Mastercard Impact Fund, administered by the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.
