Institute of Child Development Alumni Doctoral Fellowship

A personal campaign sponsored by Institute of Child Development


This year, the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota celebrated its 500th PhD graduate and our continued ranking as the #1 developmental psychology program in the country. We are committed to training future leaders in the field and meeting the urgent need for a more diverse community of practitioners and researchers.

Student financial support is critical to our continued success because it helps us recruit outstanding scholars and remain competitive. With the help of some of our doctoral graduates from the 1970s, we launched the ICD Alumni Doctoral Fellowship to ensure access for every student in our program.

That’s where you come in. You can help sustain our legacy of training future practitioners and researchers in developmental psychology who are driven to make a difference.

Your generosity helps make a quality education attainable for all high-potential, deserving students who will go on to improve lives. Be among the first to support this important fellowship. Together, we are all making a difference for children and families.
