Subject: Youth Development | Deadline: Jul. 14, 2014

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is funding a cooperative agreement to sponsor the Child Development Research Fellowship that will allow child development professionals from the academic community the opportunity to actively participate in policy-relevant research activities associated with ACF programs. The goal of the fellowship program is to expose researchers to a policy environment and thereby to expand and enrich the field's capacity for policy-relevant research. The program is intended to stimulate the active exchange of child development research and evaluation information directly relevant to ACF programs and to inform the process of developing long-term research and evaluation agendas across the various ACF programs and in the research community at large. The public will benefit from the increased availability of researchers highly skilled and experienced in policy-relevant research and evaluation. Fellows will be able to work on-site in the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) of ACF, or other offices engaged in research on low income children and families.
