2020 Jacobs Foundation Research Fellowship Program: Call for Applications


The Jacobs Foundation invests in the future of young people so that they become socially responsible and productive members of society.

In order to achieve this goal, children and youth must be given better opportunities for positive development and equitable access to education. Whatever their background, place of residence or family income, all children should have the chance to reach their full potential.

Research funding has always been a fundamental component of the Jacobs Foundation’s strategy. We believe that research plays a critical role in the development, evaluation, improvement and dissemination of interventions and programs to benefit children and young people. To drive scientific progress, we provide funding for some of the world’s leading and most innovative scientists in the field of child and youth development.

The Jacobs Foundation Research Fellowship Program is a globally competitive fellowship program for early career researchers whose work is dedicated to improving the development, learning and living conditions of children and youth. The relevant disciplines include, but are not limited, to education sciences, psychology, economics, sociology, family studies, media studies, political science, linguistics, neurosciences, and medical sciences.

Fellowships are awarded to highly talented and innovative early career researchers who have received their PhD within the past 10 years. Funding from Jacobs Foundation Research Fellowships is awarded directly to the fellow’s institution and may be used by the fellow over a three-year period to cover a portion of the fellow’s salary and for any purpose in support of the fellow’s research, such as assistants’ salaries, equipment, technical assistance, professional travel, or trainee support.

Scholars who engage in interdisciplinary work that focuses on individual development and variability in the learning of children and youth, and who seek to combine multiple levels of analysis, are particularly encouraged to apply.

In addition to providing fellows with independent and competitive funding, the program offers a wide range of non-financial benefits.
