NICHD Predoctoral Fellows

With support from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the PSTC population studies training program is one of the longest continuously funded demography training programs in the country, offering up to five graduate fellowships annually. In addition, Graduate School offers two fellowships annually to international students.

The relatively small size of the training program guarantees personalized attention, collaborative research opportunities, close faculty mentoring, access to outstanding facilities, and additional financial support for field research, data acquisition, and specialized language or methods courses.

The following trainees are fellows for the 2019-2020 academic year:
