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 (formerly called the Doris Duke Fellowships for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect).
The 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.
Fellows can be based at any academic institution in the United States. Fellows are selected from a range of academic disciplines, including but not limited to social work, public health, medicine, public policy, education, economics, psychology, and epidemiology.
Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
Fellows receive an annual stipend of $25,000 for up to two years to support the completion of their dissertation and related research at their academic institution. Up to fifteen fellowships are awarded annually.
