Call for Research Proposals:2nd Round of Fellowships on Family Planning, Fertility and Urban Development

Deadline to submit concept note: 15 April  2019
Deadline to submit full proposals: 1 July 2019

The International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) is pleased to announce the second 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.

The proposal must focus either on a single city, or represent comparative work on multiple urban areas, of any country of sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia. Eligibility will be limited to citizens of countries in sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia currently working in established institutions in those two regions (not necessarily the citizenship country), who have received a Ph.D. (or an MD with some public health or social science training and evidence of research skills) within the past ten years and who are currently affiliated with established institutions in either region.

For more information please see:

Enquiries: Any enquiries should be directed to UrbanFP@iussp.org by 15 June 2019, in order to receive a response prior to the deadline date. (Questions about the concept note phase are due by March 15.)
