Foundation for Child Development: Young Scholars Program

The FCD fellowship supports young scholars to conduct research that aims to identify and understand the challenges faced by immigrant families and their children.

Sponsor: Foundation for Child Development


The goals of the FCD Young Scholars Program are to: Stimulate both basic and policy-relevant research about the early education, health and well-being of children living in immigrant families from birth to age ten, particularly those who are living in low-income families; and support young investigators - from the behavioral and social sciences or in an allied professional field - who are untenured but in tenure-track positions or who have received tenure in the last four years from a college or university in the United States. Three to four fellowships of up to $150,000 for use over one to three years (maximum) will be awarded competitively.
