Transition Age Youth in Foster Care Research Fellowship Award

Thanks to generous support from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, the Office of Research, Evaluation and Program Support (REPS) is pleased to announce a request for proposals for three two-year faculty/administrator fellowships each in the amount of $40,000. The fellowships are designed to examine the experiences and outcomes of youth in foster care at CUNY, and to support and expand upon a foster youth research agenda in development by REPS. The fellowships will provide an additional means for generating deep, scientific knowledge to inform the work of multiple stakeholders supporting the postsecondary success of youth in foster care.
