Education & Training: Fellowships

Jerald and Virginia Bachman Research Fellowship on Change in American Youth

The Jerald and Virginia Bachman Fellowship provides support for a graduate student in one of the University of Michigan social science departments (e.g. Psychology, Sociology, Political Science, Economics) and the School of Social Work and the School of Education to examine patterns and changes in the lifestyles and values of American youth and young adults, working with faculty and staff of the Monitoring the Future (MTF) project, and using data from MTF.


Applicants must be graduate students at the University of Michigan.

Form and Scope of Awards

The Bachman Research Fellowship Fund will provide a $8,000 grant to one graduate student from the University of Michigan annually. The Bachman Award is flexible, but we anticipate that the recipient will use the money largely for salary support. Awards are intended for use within one year, but may be extended upon request for an additional six months.
