The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is now accepting applications for the Dissertation Fellowship in Population, Reproductive Health, and Economic Development.  The two-year fellowships of $20,000 per year will be awarded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and PRB.  The fellowships are open to students currently enrolled in Ph.D. programs in the United States and Canada.  Students in economics, economic demography, geography, and epidemiology are especially encouraged to apply.  Please distribute this announcement to Ph.D. advisors, colleagues, and students that may be interested in applying.  These fellowships will support dissertation research on topics that examine how population dynamics and family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) influence economic development, including economic growth, poverty reduction, and equity.  Dissertations that address population and development issues pertinent to the African continent are especially encouraged.  The research must include a strong quantitative component, with an emphasis on rigorous data analysis.  We encourage the development or use of new statistical methods.  Finally, the research must have a strong policy-relevant component, demonstrating an interest in communicating research results with program managers, planners, and policymakers.  The deadline to apply is February 16, 2007.  See the website for more details http://www.prb.org/.  Please e-mail popecondissertationfellows at prb.org with any questions.
