Apply to Become an Early Career Fellow

The Early Career Fellowship is a three-year professional development opportunity for young professionals in the field of family planning measurement. Youth fellows work closely with the PME WG co-leads and the Supports Hub to develop an annual Activity Plan that contributes to the FP2030 high-level work plan. As part of the Activity Plan, the PME WG members will collaborate with the FP2030 team to review and support analysis for the FP2030 annual progress report. Additionally, the fellows will have the opportunity to meet one on one with a PME WG member to discuss issues related to sexual and reproductive health, career, and research.

To be eligible, fellows must:

  • Be under the age of 30
  • Currently enrolled or graduated within 2 years of a PhD or DrPH graduate program related to global health, public health, demography, etc.
  • Have 3-5 years of experience working and/or studying in global family planning and sexual and reproductive health measurement.
  • Have a strong understanding and interest in the Family Planning 2030 partnership and measurement agenda.
  • Demonstrate a broad range of technical skills, experience analyzing quantitative or qualitative data, and thematic expertise on areas of the FP2030 measurement agenda.
  • Demonstrate professional proficiency in English. Please note that Working Group activities are conducted in English.

Applicants will be reviewed with an eye towards technical expertise and institutional representation while also striving for geographical diversity (both in terms of fellows’ university affiliations and where they are from), gender diversity, and representation from traditionally underrepresented groups. Students from Africa, Asia, or the LAC region are encouraged to apply.

The youth fellowship is a voluntary position with the PME Working Group and students will receive a stipend.  The application will close on Friday, January 19, 2024, at 11:59pm ET. The selected youth fellows will be notified in early 2024.
