Full Description:
The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) is seeking applicants for the SRCD Policy Fellowship Program for the 2019-2020 academic year. There are two fellowship programs: federal and state. The purpose of the fellowship program is to provide researchers with immersive opportunities to learn firsthand about policy development, implementation and evaluation, and to use their research skills in child development to inform public policy at either the federal or state level. All fellowships will be from September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2020.

SRCD Federal Policy Fellowship Program

There are two types of federal fellowships: congressional and executive branch. Both fellowships are full-time immersion experiences in Washington, D.C. as fellows work as resident scholars within congressional or federal executive branch agency offices. Application Requirements: Applicants must have a doctoral-level degree in a relevant discipline (e.g., Ph.D., M.D., Ed.D.), must demonstrate exceptional competence in an area of child development research, must be U.S. citizens, and must be members of SRCD.

We welcome applications from early, mid-career, and advanced professionals. This fellowship will help developmental scientists at all career stages understand policy development, implementation, and evaluation; the potential for linkages between research and policy; how to communicate more effectively with policymakers; and how to formulate more informed and useful questions for policy-related research.

Deadline to apply: December 14, 2018

SRCD State Policy Fellowship Program

There are two types of state fellowships: pre-doctoral and post-doctoral. SRCD will be awarding up to four part-time pre-doctoral state fellows, and two full-time post-doctoral state fellows.

Both fellowships place fellows in state executive branch agency offices for immersion experiences. In addition to a placement supervisor within the state executive branch agency, fellows will receive support from an academic mentor. SRCD expects the state fellowships to provide fellows with opportunities for exposure to policy development, implementation, and evaluation; to develop skills in mutual communication between researchers and policymakers; and to learn about ways research can be used to inform policy at the state level.

More information about the program, including requirements and procedures for submission of letters of intent is available here: https://www.srcd.org/policy-media/policy-fellowships-state

Deadline to submit letters of intent: December 21, 2018
