Applications for PRB’s 2018-2019 US Policy Communications Training Program are now open!

The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is pleased to announce that the 2018-2019 U.S. Policy Communication Training Program is now open for applications.  Applications will close February 16th, 2018.

Please see the attachment for eligibility criteria and instructions on how to apply. Kindly share this information with graduate students in demography programs and related areas of study. Additional information about the training program can be found on our website.

The U.S. Policy Communication Training Program builds on PRB’s 40-year legacy of training researchers to communicate their findings for policy change. The program is 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), PRB will be able to fund the participation of U.S. citizens and permanent residents studying demography, population health, and reproductive health in doctoral programs at U.S. academic institutions.
