The UNC IPRC is accepting applications for its 2020-21 Injury and Violence Prevention (IVP) Fellowship Program. Access the application here.

The IVP Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for masters and doctoral students from diverse academic, professional, and demographic backgrounds to gain hands-on experience in IVP careers, including building skills in a broad range of approaches for IVP-related research, programs, and policy design; and translating research to practice for policymakers, health care providers, community organizations, and other partners in IVP.

IVP Fellows work with IPRC-affiliated faculty mentors to identify opportunities to get experience conducting IVP-related research, programming, or policy development. The fellowship will provide $3,000 per year to support research activities, travel, conference and meeting attendance, and other professional development or training opportunities. Limited, additional funding may be available for specific activities or opportunities on an ad-hoc basis. Fellows are expected to participate in one workshop per semester, and are invited to engage with IPRC-sponsored events that are aligned with their interests.

Students from a wide-range of disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Click here to apply. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on April 8, 2020.
