RE:     DORIS DUKE FELLOWSHIP APPLICATIONS DUE DECEMBER 15


The Doris Duke Fellowships for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect aim to identify, develop and empower a new generation of leaders who use diverse research methods to improve child abuse prevention policy and practice. 

Because the prevention of child maltreatment requires 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:

Economics
Education
Epidemiology
Medicine
Psychology
Public Health
Public Policy
Social Work

Fellows receive an annual stipend of $25,000 for up to two years to support the completion of their dissertation and related research at their academic institution. Up to 15 fellowships are awarded annually. 

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents in the United States.

The deadline for applications is Thursday, 15 December 2011.
