MDRC Seeks Applications for Fall 2017 Doctoral Fellowship in the Gueron Fund Minority Scholars Program


As part of its Gueron Minority Scholars Program, MDRC is offering one doctoral fellowship in fall 2017 to a Ph.D. candidate who is pursuing independent, self-directed research on economic and social problems affecting low-income Americans. The recipient , who will receive a $5,000 stipend, will work on his or her doctoral dissertation — and will participate in the intellectual life of MDRC by attending seminars and project meetings and by working with key MDRC research staff.

The Gueron Minority Scholars Program seeks to engage and encourage individuals from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the education and social policy research communities. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for graduate students to gain exposure to education and social policy research, understand employment options beyond the academic and public sectors, and get the advice and support of MDRC’s staff.

The application deadline for the doctoral fellowship is Thursday, August 31, 2017. To learn more, click on the link above.
