2017-2018 U.S. Policy Communication Training-Applications Now Open

The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 cohort of the U.S. Policy Communication Training Program, which are due on January 27, 2017. Please see our announcement (online and attached) for eligibility criteria and instructions on how to apply. Please share this information with graduate students in demography programs and related areas of study.

This training program builds on PRB’s 40-year legacy of training researchers to communicate their findings for policy change. The program is designed to develop skills that U.S. researchers need to communicate with U.S. policy audiences, including decision makers and the media. Through the generous support of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), we are able to offer this in-depth policy communication training to U.S. citizens and permanent residents studying demography, population health, and reproductive health in doctoral programs at U.S. academic institutions.
