Compton International Fellows

Since 2001, the Compton Foundation and the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) have collaborated to increase the capacity of outstanding graduate students from sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America to affect policy and/or improve the effectiveness of population, family planning, and reproductive health programs in the developing world.


In the spirit of this collaboration and to fulfill its objectives, PRB manages the Compton Foundation/PRB International Fellowship. The Fellowship supports capstone/internship work and dissertation research on topics that examine the interactions linking family planning and reproductive health with environmental/sustainability and/or human security issues. The program also aims to maintain a community of Fellows over time that encourages program- and research-based linkages among these fields.

The Compton Foundation/PRB International Fellowship is a unique opportunity for highly motivated individuals to explore the interactions linking family planning and reproductive health with environmental/sustainability and/or human security issues. The individuals receiving Fellowships are also committed to returning to their country or region of origin where they apply the skills and education they acquired and make substantial contributions to the field.
