The Bixby Center for Population, Health and Sustainability funds graduate student summer internships and dissertation research in the areas of family planning and population for graduate students at UC Berkeley. The principal focus of the program is on family planning issues in developing countries where population growth rates remain high and reproductive health services are poor or inaccessible. (Internships that focus only on HIV/AIDS do not meet the criteria.)
Summer internships should be outside of the United States and must concentrate on family planning, reproductive health, or population. Items of doctoral research relevant to the above topics could be conducted in the United States. The program is open to first year Master’s students and Doctoral students in the School of Public Health, Demography, Haas School of Business, Social Welfare, and International and Area Studies, University of California Berkeley.
