Because the promotion of child well-being and the prevention of child maltreatment require knowledge and collaboration from diverse fields, the program is multidisciplinary in scope and approach . Fellows are selected from a range of academic disciplines, including—-but not limited to—-child development, education, epidemiology, medicine, nursing, psychology, public health, public policy, social work, and sociology. Fellows' dissertations must be focused on an aspect of child well-being and the prevention of child maltreatment. Fellows will participate in two in-person meetings and several online webinars and learning activities during each fellowship year; additionally, fellows will work in a small group on a project. As such, applicants should be ready and excited to collaborate in an interdisciplinary peer learning network on a variety of projects.

The application form will be the same for the USIP Jennings Randolph Peace Scholarships and the DOD-funded Minerva-USIP Peace and Security Scholarships.
