Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited U.S. doctoral program and have completed the coursework required to be advanced to candidacy. They are expected to complete or make significant progress on their dissertation within the two-year fellowship period. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the U.S. Applicants may be enrolled in any discipline. Their dissertation must be applicable to practice and policy challenges facing the fields of healthy child development and child abuse prevention. Examples include research that will inform the development of program strategies that can attract and retain the most vulnerable families, efforts to apply emerging knowledge in addressing other social problems related to the issue of child abuse prevention, or blending multiple policy streams and approaches with an eye toward defining and testing systems or normative change. Doctoral students already well advanced in their dissertation process who would benefit from a one-year fellowship are encouraged to apply as well. Such candidates may receive support for the full two-year period in order to apply their findings to a specific policy or practice challenge facing the prevention field.
