Campbell Fellowship for Transformative Research on Women in the Developing World

One six- or nine-month residential fellowship is available for a female doctoral level scholar whose research both documents the circumstances of women in the developing world and offers paths to concrete, practical strategies for improving their health, prosperity, and general well-being.

The successful applicant for this fellowship will have, by the application deadline, completed a doctorate in anthropology, economics, geography, history, law, political science, psychology, sociology, or in an interdisciplinary field that incorporates two or more of these disciplines.

Sample topics include education and socialization of girls; women’s roles in government; reproduction and women’s health; impacts of international and civil conflict on women; women’s roles in resolving conflicts or sustaining civil society; the practice and process of gender-based development; and women in science and technology.

Fellows receive a $4,500/month stipend in addition to housing and office space on the SAR campus. This fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Vera R. Campbell Foundation.
