The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is pleased to announce the 2016-2017 U.S. Policy Communication Training Program. We are accepting applications for the 2016-2017 cohort and applications are due on February 28, 2016. Please see our announcement (online and attached) for eligibility criteria and instructions on how to apply. Please share this information with graduate students in demography programs and related areas of study.
This training program builds on PRB’s 40-year legacy of training researchers to communicate their findings for policy change. We are pleased to be able to offer a program designed to develop skills that U.S. researchers need to communicate with U.S. policy audiences, including decision makers and the media. Through the generous support of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), we are able to offer an in-depth policy communication training to U.S. citizens and permanent residents studying demography, population health, and reproductive health in doctoral programs at U.S. academic institutions.
We hope you will join us in spreading the word about this opportunity. If you have questions, please contact Hanna Christianson at USPolicyTraining2015@prb.org.
