The Power of Connections: Creating a Network of Emerging Scholars to Spark Innovation is a recently released report highlighting how the fellowships program is succeeding in selecting high quality fellows, creating a strong peer learning network, and impacting the child well-being field.


Research to Action Grants pilot program, generously funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, is an opportunity for up to three teams of Doris Duke fellows and their policy or practice partners to apply research strategies to address a specific policy or practice challenge.


Scott Brown, Cohort Six Fellow, recently won an award from the Raymond Vernon Memorial for best paper from the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management.

Francesca Longo, Cohort Five Fellow, is an SRCD Executive Branch Fellow working in the Office of Child Care in the U.S Department of Health and Human Services.


Whether still in school working towards their dissertation, in a post-doctoral position, or in a full-time job, Doris Duke Fellows spread their expertise and knowledge in universities, organizations, and agencies across the country.  The 120 current and former fellows currently work and study in 39 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, France, and Germany.
