Call for Applications - Please Circulate:

Deadline for applications: 31 January 2005.

The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is now accepting applications for its 2005-2006 Fellows Program in Population Policy Communications. The Program is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and is open to citizens of developing countries* who are doctoral-level students in the United States and Canada. They may be in any field of study but must have a demonstrated interest in population, family planning, or reproductive health.

The Program was developed to bridge the gap between research findings and the policy development process. While research often has profound policy implications, it must be communicated effectively to a variety of non-technical audiences in order to have an impact.

The goals of the Population Policy Communications Program are:

  • to understand the process by which research informs the policy environment; and
  • to learn various ways to communicate findings to policy audiences.

Program Information
The year-long program has three parts:

Washington Workshop: Participants will attend a two-week workshop at PRB in Washington, D.C., June 20 to July 1, 2005 during which they will interact with PRB staff and outside experts active in policy research and communications. This workshop focuses on the role of research in the policy process and on techniques for effective communication of research findings to decision makers. Guest speakers address topics related to the Fellows' policy research interests. During the workshop, participants are asked to consider their own research in terms of its relevance to policy audiences.

Research Project: During the 2005-2006 academic year, participants apply the lessons learned at the Washington Workshop to prepare written and oral presentations for policy audiences, based on their dissertations or related research topics. On the basis of their own research (usually but not exclusively dissertation research), the Fellows prepare a ten-page policy paper, and a ten-minute policy presentation for the PAA workshop.

PAA Workshop: The Fellows formally present their research findings at a workshop held prior to the 2006 Population Association of America (PAA) Annual Meeting. During the workshop, Fellows make ten-minute policy presentations to the other Fellows and to PRB and guest discussants. The workshop offers an opportunity to use skills learned at the seminar, as well as to obtain feedback on the papers, memos, and presentations.

PRB covers travel, lodging, and per diem expenses for each Fellow to attend the Washington Workshop and the PAA. PRB pays for the PAA registration for each Fellow and awards stipends of $2,000 to cover Fellows' research expenses.

Application Information
The deadline for applying is January 31, 2005. The fellowship awards will be announced in March 2005.

Applicants should send PRB a cover letter, an application form, an updated resume, a two- or three-page research proposal, and two letters of reference. Completed applications should be addressed to the Fellows Program Manager and may be sent via e-mail or by mail. PRB will also accept references by e-mail if they are sent directly from the e-mail account of the person writing the reference. Application forms can be downloaded from the PRB website (www.prb.org) or can be requested from the Fellows Program Manager:
