CDC/PRC Minority Fellowship
Prevention Research Centers
Association of Schools of Public Health
In collaboration with the Association of Schools of Public Health, CDC selects doctoral-level students of ethnic or racial minority origin for two years of training and guided research at a Prevention Research Center. The fellowship provides training in prevention research and community-based participatory research. The fellows have academic researchers and community participants as mentors for conducting research with communities distinct by race or ethnicity, age, income, or other socioeconomic factors. This fellowship affords a two-year opportunity to gain practical, first-hand experience in prevention research. Fellows participate in projects under the direction of leading experts in public health and prevention research. Fellows work on current PRC projects and are encouraged to propose their own projects related to PRC activities.
The fellowship is intended for under-represented minority students (African American, Hispanic, American Indian or Alaska Native, and Asian or Pacific Islander) currently enrolled in doctoral-level research (e.g., PhD, DrPH, EdD, ScD) at an accredited university or school of public health with a CDC-funded Prevention Research Center can apply.
