Apply Now: Summer Residential Scholarship Institute at Brown University

by on December 10, 2013

From June 7-21, 2014, Brown University (in Providence, RI, USA) will host an international residential institute designed to enhance the scholarship, research, methodological skills, training, and networks of early-career social scientists from less developed countries. Participants will receive tailored feedback on their research ideas and will meet and interact with more than 20 of the world’s leaders in population and development studies over the course of the 2-week institute. In addition to providing cutting-edge and personalized training, this institute aims to help foster collaborations between the Global North and Global South, as well as among scholars from different developing regions across the world.

The theme of the institute is Population and Development: New Approaches to Enduring Global Problems. With the world’s population officially surpassing 7 billion, this institute will address the crucial and interlinked issues of population and development, particularly as they affect people in the Global South. What are the most significant population issues in the 21st century? How do population dynamics and the policies designed to address them contribute to or detract from equitable development? How can theories and methods in the social sciences contribute to understanding the relationship between population and development, and how can this scholarship contribute to better policies and programs? Participants will engage with cutting-edge theory, innovative and tested research methods, and first-rate scholarship upon which to build their own research programs.

Review of applications begins December 16, 2013.
