Doris Duke Fellowships for the Promotion of Child Well-Being

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—seeking innovations in child abuse and neglect prevention. These 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. 

The application period for the fifth cohort of fellows opens on August 15, 2014. Applications are due by December 15, 2014. The fifth cohort will begin in the summer of 2015. Each fellow receives an annual stipend of $25,000 for up to two years.

Who can apply
Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited U.S. doctoral program and will have substantially completed the coursework required to be advanced to candidacy by the time the fellowship begins (summer of 2015). Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the U.S. We encourage students in a variety of disciplines to apply.
