MDRC has extended the application deadline to February 14 for up to two summer doctoral fellowships for Ph.D. candidates who are pursuing independent, self-directed research on economic and social problems affecting Americans with low incomes. The fellowships are supported by the Gueron Scholars Program, which seeks to engage and encourage individuals from groups that are underrepresented in the education and social policy research communities.
Fellowship recipients, who will receive a $10,000 stipend, will work on their doctoral dissertation—and will participate in the intellectual life of MDRC by attending seminars and project meetings and by working with MDRC research staff. The fellowship is expected to begin in June and last for two months.
MDRC is pleased to provide housing for selected fellows. Applicants invited to interview virtually will receive more information about this opportunity.
