Fellowship Program


The goal of the Research Fellowship Program at the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families (Center) is to attract, develop, and expand the pool of emerging scholars focused on studying issues of relevance to low-income and vulnerable Hispanic children and families. The spring (~March 15 – June 15) or fall (~Sept. 1- Nov. 30) in-person fellowship is a full-time position; fellows will be expected to work 37.5 hours per week for the full 12-week fellowship period. The start and end dates are negotiable. Fellows will be located at either Child Trends or Abt Associates in their Bethesda, MD offices.

Fellows will have applied opportunities to work on research studies and policy-related projects relevant to the Center’s mission of conducting research and providing research-based information to inform programs and policies supporting Hispanic children and families around the three research priority areas. The research fellowship program is open to advanced graduate students (those currently in their third year or higher of a Ph.D. program). We seek emerging scholars who demonstrate a significant interest in conducting research with low-income Hispanic populations, understand the cultural and linguistic diversity among the populations, and are excited about contributing to the development of better tools and resources to produce more rigorous and valid research concerning low-income Hispanic populations.
