The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard and the Novak Djokovic Foundation launched the Djokovic Science and Innovation Fellowship in 2016 in an effort to contribute science-based innovation in early childhood development.

The Djokovic Fellowship supports the research of Harvard University advanced doctoral students whose work is related to early childhood health, learning, and behavior. Selected fellows receive a stipend and join an active, interdisciplinary learning community for one academic year. The goal of the fellowship is to create a new generation of leaders who will drive innovation that impacts the early childhood field and the lives of children facing adversity.

The application for the 2019-20 academic year is available now.

Completed applications are due Jan. 2, 2019, by 5 p.m. E.S.T.
