The application for the 2022 DHS Fellows Program is now open
The DHS Fellows Program builds the long-term institutional capacity of universities in DHS Program countries to train students and faculty to analyze DHS data. Since 2011, the DHS Fellows Program has trained more than 150 researchers from over 40 universities in 25 countries in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Typically, Fellows attend two separate in-person workshops, prepare publication-quality research papers in teams using DHS datasets, and implement capacity strengthening activities at their home universities.
The 2022 DHS Fellows Program will be conducted virtually and in English. Because the DHS Fellows Program will be virtual, this year’s call for applications is open to countries that have not been included in the DHS Fellows Program previously. Applications are accepted from university faculty members at universities in Angola, Benin, Burundi, Gambia, Liberia, Mali, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Maldives, Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste, Guatemala, Haiti, Armenia, and Tajikistan. Teams of three members from the same university who teach and/or conduct research in demography, public health, economics, sociology, or other social sciences are encouraged to apply.
