Call for Proposals: Family Planning, Fertility and Urban Development

Posted: 9/2/2018 (Conference)

The International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) is pleased to announce a call for policy-relevant research proposals from early career researchers to:

 

  • contribute to the evidence base needed to better meet the family planning (FP) and related reproductive health (RH) needs of the most vulnerable in urban areas of countries of sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, and

 

  • increase the attention paid to FP, fertility and population growth in urban development policy initiatives at local, national and international levels.

 

Eligibility will be limited to citizens of countries in sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia, who have received a Ph.D. within the past ten years and who are currently affiliated with established institutions in either region. Applications to study settings with high fertility, high unmet need for FP and high rates of urbanization are particularly encouraged. Most fellowships will last for two years, with a minority lasting one or three years.
