Call for Proposals
The FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP) supports policy- and practice-relevant research on the development and learning needs of the nation’s young children growing up under conditions of poverty and low-income. FCD believes that early learning is a solid first step towards lifelong development and that promoting research in this area, conducted in a holistic and culturally sensitive manner, will help address the disparities in children’s outcomes.
YSP encourages applications from scholars who are:
- From historically disadvantaged or underrepresented groups, e.g. first-generation college graduates, and those from low-income communities.
- Scholars who represent a variety of disciplines and methods, given that mental, physical, health, social, economic, institutional, and community factors impact early learning and child development.
Eligible researchers will have received their doctoral degrees (e.g., Ph.D., J.D., Ed.D., Psy.D., M.D.) within seven years of application submission. Ten years for physician applicants.
