The David E. Bell Fellowship Program provides opportunities for research and leadership training in a two-year, non-degree program for researchers and practitioners in the field of population and development. Through self-directed research, selected candidates will examine a broad range of critical issues in the field of population and development studies from multidisciplinary perspectives. Most fellows will have interests that match the focal areas of the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, including: social and environmental determinants of population health; aging societies; workplace & well-being; and social/family demography.

Fellows participate in population science seminars, weekly work-in-progress sessions, leadership skill building seminars, and communications & media skills training. Fellows also have access to multiple educational opportunities at Harvard.

Selected candidates possess:

  • a strong record of academic training;
  • a commitment to population and development work;
  • the demonstrated ability to work independently;
  • leadership potential.

The wide range of perspectives will enhance the fellows’ experiences and broaden the community life at the Center.

This program is open to both U.S. and international scholars. Two finalists will be selected.
