The Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA) has partnered with the John Templeton Foundation and the International Consortium of Developmental Science Societies to create a mentored research opportunity for early-career scholars from around the world to study the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth development. Early career scholars in the SRA COVID-19 Network Program will:
- Attend the virtual SRA Pre-Conference on COVID-19 and Adolescent Development on February 9 from 8 am-1 pm U.S. Eastern time (registration free but required) to learn about opportunities for international collaboration and to meet with senior mentors who will support their work.
- Be eligible for travel funds to support their in-person attendance (when possible) at the SRA Conference in New Orleans from March 3-5, 2022 (or their online registration fee for the conference when travel is not possible) to meet again with their mentors for project planning.
- Submit proposals for seed grants of $10,000 to support their ongoing research collaborations.
- Attend a virtual meeting with other fellows in the following year for further training on manuscripts and grant submissions for international scholars.
Eligible scholars will be:
- Enrolled in a PhD program or within 10 years of earning their professional or doctoral degree
- Engaged in research regarding adolescent development
- Hold positions at institutions that support research
Applications are due December 8, 2021. Funding decisions will be announced by the end of December.
Questions regarding the program should be directed to Dr. Jennifer Lansford (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Suman Verma (email@example.com).
