Description

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. The Fellows receive an annual stipend for up to two years to support the completion of their dissertation and related research at their academic institution. Fellows are guided by an academic mentor whom they select; fellows also identify a policy or program mentor to assist them in better understanding how to frame their research questions with an eye toward maximizing policy and practice relevance. Because the promotion of child well-being and 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-social work, public health, medicine, public policy, education, economics, psychology, and epidemiology.
