COVID-19 International Fellows Program

The SRA COVID-19 International Fellows Program is sponsored by the Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA), the John Templeton Foundation (JTF) and the Family Journeys Co-Lab (FJC). 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.
