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.
