Posted on

Deadline: 15 April 2015

The Jacobs Foundation Research Fellowship Program invites early and mid-career researchers focusing on child and youth development. Fellowships are awarded directly to the Fellow’s institution and may be used over a three-year period by the Fellow to partially cover the Fellow’s salary and for any activity supporting the Fellow’s research, such as assistant salaries, equipment, technical assistance, professional travel, or trainee support.

Fellows are selected on the basis of their research accomplishments, creativity, and potential to become leaders in the scientific community through their contributions to the field of child and youth development.

Application materials include

  1. A letter from a department head or other senior researcher supporting the candidate and describing his or her qualifications, initiative, and research;
  2. The candidate’s curriculum vitae including a list of the candidate’s scientific publications;
  3. A two-page statement by the candidate describing his or her significant scientific work and immediate research plans.
