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.

Harold A. Richman Postdoctoral Fellowship

Named for Chapin Hall’s founding director, the Harold A. Richman Postdoctoral Fellowship is a two-year position that offers early-career scholars the opportunity to strengthen their research portfolios and help launch careers in social policy research. Fellows work with senior researchers at Chapin Hall and faculty at the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration (SSA). Candidates should have interests in early childhood services, family support, child care, and/or early education policy.
