Four Harvard Graduate Students Receive 2013-2014 Julius B. Richmond Fellowships
Four Harvard graduate students have been named recipients of Julius B. Richmond Fellowships from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. The doctoral students will each receive a dissertation grant totaling $10,000 from the Center to fund independent research during the 2013-2014 academic year. In awarding the one-year Fellowships, the Center selects candidates with excellent academic records and defined research interests in child health and development. Priority is given to applicants whose work aligns with the mission of the Center, crosses disciplinary boundaries, and has implications for social policy.
Any available full-time positions at the Center are posted on Harvard’s employment Web site at http://www.employment.harvard.edu. All applicants for employment with Harvard University must apply for the specific job opening through its Web site.
Throughout the year, the Center offers work for highly motivated students in its offices at 50 Church Street and in the labs of our affiliated faculty across the campus.
