The fellowships are designed to develop a new generation of leaders capable of creating practice and policy initiatives that will enhance child development and improve the nation's ability to prevent all forms of child maltreatment. Thanks to the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the 15 fellows for Cohort Seven will receive an annual stipend of $30,000 for up to two years to support the completion of their dissertation and related research at their academic institution. They will also have the opportunity to participate in numerous peer learning opportunities in order to build a strong, interdisciplinary network within the fellowship. The fellows were selected by a panel of experts convened by Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago. This year the applicant pool was highly competitive, but Tyler submitted an excellent application, which was supported by a strong telephone interview performance.
