The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) is seeking applicants for SRCD Policy Fellowships for 2017–2018. There are two types of fellowships: Congressional and Executive Branch. Both types of fellowships provide researchers with exciting opportunities to come to Washington, DC, and use their research skills in child development to inform public policy. Fellows work as resident scholars within congressional or federal agency offices.
Fellowships run from September 1, 2017, through August 31, 2018. Applicants must have a doctoral-level degree in a relevant discipline (e.g., PhD, MD, EdD), must demonstrate exceptional competence in an area of child development research, and must be a member of SRCD. Both early-career and advanced professionals are encouraged to apply. The deadline to apply is December 15, 2016. To apply for the fellowship, click here.
