Population Reference Bureau, Policy Communication Fellowship
Application Deadline Feb 2nd
Amount and Duration: $2,000 research stipend, 2 week workshop
The Policy Communication Fellows program provides participants with an understanding of how research can inform social policy, and a detailed knowledge of different approaches to communicating research findings to non-specialists. It begins with a two-week workshop held at PRB, during which participants learn about how research influences the policy process and how to communicate research effectively. During the 2012-2013 academic year, participants will prepare several policy-oriented research briefs, one of which they will present at a workshop prior to the 2013 Population Association of America (PAA) Annual Meeting.
Funding Opportunity Description
We are accepting applications from citizens of developing countries that plan to return to their home countries upon completion of their doctoral studies. Candidates accepted into the Policy Fellows program will be provided with travel, lodging, and per diem associated with the Washington and PAA workshops, PAA registration costs, as well as a $2,000 research stipend. The program is currently funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and for this reason we can only accept candidates that come from developing countries where USAID provides population and family planning funding (visit our recruitment page online for a complete list of eligible countries).
