The FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP) supports policy- and practice-relevant research on the development and learning needs of the nation's young children growing up under conditions of poverty and low-income. FCD believes that early learning is a solid first step towards lifelong development and that promoting research in this area, conducted in a holistic and culturally sensitive manner, will help address the disparities in children's outcomes. 

Eligible researchers will have received their doctoral degrees (e.g., Ph.D., J.D., Ed.D., Psy.D., M.D.) within seven years of application submission. Ten years for physician applicants.

To view additional eligibility criteria, research focus and for more information about applying to the YSP, please visit the YSP Program page of the FCD Website.
