Population, Environment, and Human Security: Fellowship Award

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, the Compton Foundation is making available Fellowships through PRB for 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. This Fellowship provides highly motivated individuals with a unique opportunity to explore these very important interactions.

Fellowship recipients must also be committed to returning to their country or region of origin to apply the skills and education they acquired and make substantial contributions to the field.

The Compton Fellowship program also aims to maintain a community of Fellows over time that encourages program-based and research-based linkages among these fields.

the Compton Foundation/PRB International Fellowship will award up to two master's-level and up to four PhD-level Fellowships.
  • The master's Fellowship recipients will be awarded up to $10,000 each, normally limited to a period of one year.
  • The Ph.D. Fellowships will be awarded up to $20,000 each, normally limited to a period of one year.
Selected Fellows will become part of the community of Compton/PRB-supported professionals, which requires participating in a three-day meeting in mid-September and becoming involved in an electronic network of past and current Fellows.
