ISSBD-JJF Mentored Fellowships for Early Career Scholars

The ISSBD and the Jacobs Foundation share an interest in developing the careers of early career scholars from all parts of the world, including currency-restricted countries, and have established a fellowship program for this purpose. The target groups are students who intend to pursue a doctorate in developmental research, or who have recently enrolled in a doctoral program at their home institution. The ISSBD-JJF Fellowship includes mentorship, financial assistance, and opportunities for travel to further develop students’ research skills. In particular, it provides: (a) transnational mentorship by ISSBD members who will work in partnership with the students’ local supervisor; (b) a monthly stipend of up to US$ 1500, depending on living expenses in the country of residence; and (c) the opportunity to apply for additional travel grants to facilitate institutional exchange. The language for mentoring is English. Half of the fellowships are reserved for students from currency-restricted countries.
