SRCD Fellowships in Public Policy
SRCD Policy Fellows - in both Congressional and Executive Branch placements - work as "resident scholars" at the interface of science and policy. The goals of these fellowships are: (1) to contribute to the effective use of scientific knowledge in developing public policy, (2) to educate the scientific community about the formation of public policy, and (3) to establish a more effective liaison between developmental scientists and the federal policy-making mechanisms.
SRCD Fellows participate with other scientific societies in the fellowship programs of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Since 1978, SRCD has recruited more than 140 fellows.
Both early and mid-career doctoral level professionals of all scientific disciplinesrelated to child development are encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications isDecember 15, 2011. For more information and application instructions, please click here.
