Application Deadline Extended for Summer Doctoral Fellowship in the MDRC Gueron Scholars Program
MDRC has extended the application deadline until Friday, April 17, for its summer doctoral fellowship for Ph.D. candidates who are pursuing independent, self-directed research on economic and social problems affecting low-income Americans. The fellowship is supported by the Gueron Scholars Program, which seeks to engage and encourage individuals from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the education and social policy research communities.
Fellows, who receive a $5,000 stipend, work on their doctoral dissertations — and participate in the intellectual life of MDRC by attending seminars and project meetings and by working with key MDRC research staff. The fellowship is expected to begin in the summer and last for approximately two months, though there is some flexibility in the timing. The 2020 fellow may choose to be located in our New York City, Oakland, CA, or Washington, DC, offices (subject, of course, to the state of the coronavirus pandemic).
