The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago invite outstanding doctoral students to apply for the Doris Duke Fellowships for the Promotion of Child Well-Being—seeking innovations in child abuse and neglect prevention (formerly named the Doris Duke Fellowships for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect). These fellowships are designed to identify and develop a new generation of leaders interested in and capable of creating practice and policy initiatives that will enhance child development and improve the nation’s ability to prevent all forms of child maltreatment.
The application period for the third cohort of fellows opens on August 15, 2012. Applications are due by December 15, 2012. The third cohort will begin in the summer of 2013. Each fellow receives an annual stipend of $25,000 for up to two years.
Who can apply Fellows can be based at any academic institution in the U.S. and must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the U.S. to be eligible. We encourage students in a variety of disciplines to apply.
