Opportunity Description

Applications are now being accepted for the Jacobs Foundation Global Research Fellowship Program 2023. Early- and mid-career researchers whose work focuses on enhancing the learning and development of children and youth worldwide are eligible for the Jacobs Foundation Research Fellowship Program, a highly competitive fellowship program.

Education sciences, psychology, economics, sociology, behavioral science, computer science, pedagogy, linguistics, neurosciences, and the science of learning are a few of the relevant fields.

Scholars who want to integrate different levels of analysis and work across disciplines are especially invited to apply. Work to comprehend and embrace learning variability, advance the creation, transmission, and practical application of information on human learning and development, or boost the capacity to scale up successful educational policies and practices are all given particular attention.

The following issues are of particular importance to the Jacobs Foundation:
  • What effects do individual differences and environmental circumstances have on learning, growth, and learning outcomes?
  • How can we account for learner diversity at scale so that every kid may realize their full academic and personal potential?
  • How can we create treatments that lessen the widening gaps in children’s learning and the effects of digital technology?
  • How can we address the use of data to support learners’ and teachers’ decision-making regarding their instruction and learning?
