ICDSS COVID-19 Global Scholars Program

The ICDSS COVID-19 Global Scholars Program was originally sponsored by the Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA), the John Templeton Foundation (JTF) and the Family Journeys Co-Lab (FJC) and is now housed under the International Consortium for Developmental Science Societies. The goal of the fellowship is to build a community of early career scholars engaged in understanding the impact of COVID-19 experiences on short- and long-term adolescent development. We use a team mentoring approach to bring expertise, international collaboration, data opportunities, and research projects to support our scholars in independent and cross-national investigations. Scholars may access resources and information about the program through the links below. 

Advisory Board Members:  Mulat Asnake (Ethiopia), Aprile Benner (USA), Alexia Carrizales (USA), Susan Branje (Netherlands), Jeff Cookston (USA), Gizen Erdem (Turkey), Andrea Hussong (USA), Jen Lansford (USA), Leunita Makutsa Makila (Kenya), Lucia Magis Weinberg (USA), Velma McBride Murry (USA), Ersilia Menesini (Italy), Amanda Sheffield Morris (USA), Suman Verma (India)
