Call for Proposals: Second Round of Fellowships on Family Planning, Fertility and Urban Development

Deadline: 15 April 2019 - 12:00am

The International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) is seeking early career researchers in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to produce policy-relevant evidence on family planning and fertility in cities and towns and their links to urban welfare.

This IUSSP project seeks to link the fields of family planning, fertility and population change with the field of urban development creating a cadre of fellows devoted to the study of these intersections. The fellowships are modest, meant to support 1-2 years of part-time research to give early career researchers the opportunity to analyse secondary data and publish their results. Funds are also available to conduct small scale field research instead of, or as a supplement to, secondary analysis.
