Foundation for Child Development Young Scholars Program Offers Support for Research on Immigrant Children
Deadline: November 1, 2006

The Foundation for Child Development (<a href=""></a>) Young Scholars Program provides approximately four fellowships of up to $150,000 each over a maximum period of three years to study issues affecting the development of young immigrant children in the United States.

The FCD Young Scholars Program aims to stimulate basic and policy-relevant research focused on the early education, health, and well-being of immigrant children from birth to age ten, particularly those who are living in low-income families.

YSP supports 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.

Scholars must have earned their Ph.D. within the last fifteen years (seven years from completion of residency for M.D.s). 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). Applicants must be U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents, or those who have employment authorization from the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services for the duration of the award.
