Application for Doris Duke Fellowships: Cohort Five
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 to prevent child abuse and neglect. 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. Because the prevention of child maltreatment requires knowledge and collaboration from diverse fields, the fellowships are multidisciplinary in scope and approach.
