This program will support research and evaluation that advances understanding of the role of relationships in fostering child and adolescent well being and healthy human development. Proposals for research grounded in relational-cultural theory are particularly encouraged, as are those that give particular attention to the ways findings can be used programmatically to help children. Researchers from universities or research institutions in the U.S., including researchers from the Wellesley Centers for Women, are eligible to apply.
Awards will be in two categories:
1. Ph.D, Ed.D., or Psy.D. Individual dissertation awards: $2,500-$5,000 per year for up to two years. (up to five awards will be given)
2. Research grants: $2,500-$50,000 per year for up to three years. (up to five grants will be given)
Dissertation awards are open to students enrolled in an accredited graduate program at a U.S. university and working toward a Ph.D., Ed.D. or Psy.D. Proof of student status and two faculty recommendations must be submitted with the application, which must be for work on an approved dissertation topic. These awards do not carry indirect costs.
Research grants will be made to researchers (Ph.D. or equivalent) who are based at universities or not-for-profit research institutions in the U.S. Research grants will be awarded to the institution, not to individuals. Indirect costs up to 15% of the total budget are allowed.
