The Foundation for Child Development: Changing Faces of America’s Children - Young Scholars Program's goals are to:
- Stimulate basic and policy-relevant research about the early education, health and well-being of immigrant children from birth to age 10, particularly those who are living in low-income families.
- Support the career development of young investigators—from the behavioral and social sciences or in an allied professional field—to attain tenure or who have received tenure in the last four years from a college or university in the United States.
Eligible researchers will have earned their doctoral degrees within the last 15 years, and be full-time, faculty members of an institution in the United States. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent in one of the behavioral and social sciences or in an allied professional field (e.g., public policy, public health, education, social work, nursing, medicine). Three to four fellowships of up to $150,000 for use over one to three years (and in rare cases, up to five years) will be awarded. Please note tenure equivalent positions are not eligible for the fellowship.
The deadline is November 2, 2011. Additional information is available at:
