Doris Duke Fellowships for the Promotion of Child Well-Being

Application Deadline:  December 1, 2017

The Doris Duke Fellowships for the Promotion of Child Well-Being 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.

Fifteen fellowships are awarded annually. Each fellow receives an annual stipend of $30,000 for up to two years to support the completion of their dissertation and related research at their academic institution. Fellows are guided by an academic mentor whom they select; fellows also identify a policy or practice mentor to assist them in better understanding how to frame their research questions with an eye toward maximizing policy and practice relevance.

Because the promotion of child well-being and the prevention of child maltreatment require knowledge and collaboration from diverse fields, the program is multidisciplinary in scope and approach. Fellows are selected from a range of academic disciplines, including—-but not limited to—-child development, education, epidemiology, medicine, nursing, psychology, public health, public policy, social work, and sociology. Fellows’ dissertations must be focused on an aspect of child well-being and the prevention of child maltreatment.

Eligibility

Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited U.S. doctoral program and have substantially completed the coursework required to be advanced to candidacy. They are expected to complete or make significant progress on their dissertation within the two-year fellowship period. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the U.S. Most applicants will not have formally submitted their dissertation proposal until after the fellowship period begins. If an applicant is conducting research in another country, they are still eligible for the fellowship but the policy focus and implications of that work must be directed to U.S. issues. Applicants may be enrolled in any discipline. Their dissertation must be applicable to practice and policy challenges facing the fields of healthy child development and child abuse prevention.
