Fellowships

Doris Duke fellows at an annual meeting.

Chapin Hall’s fellowships equip future leaders to improve the lives of youth, children, and families by connecting evidence to action. We offer several fellowships of varying lengths with a focus on emerging research and policy experts who are focused on addressing these important issues.

Doris Duke Fellowship for the Promotion of Child Well-Being

Thanks to the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago is pleased to offer the Doris Duke Fellowships for the Promotion of Child Well-Being (formerly called the Doris Duke Fellowships for the Prevention of 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.
