The Solsbery Summer Research FellowshipThe Solsbery Endowed Fellowship was established in 1996 in memory of Paul and Charles Solsbery, two young boys whose lives were tragically cut short by violence. The founders of the Fund Wendy Rowden ('76), John Carton ('76) and Lee Solsbery ('76), the boys' father, wanted to ensure that the children's legacy was not one of senseless loss but of help to others by promoting research into the prevention of behavioral misadventures, which includes accidents, suicide, homicide, and other conditions limiting longevity in young people. The Fund has been made possible through the generous support of the original donors, as well as numerous other Brown alumni. Learn more about the Fellowship and how to apply.

The Society for the Study of Human DevelopmentThe Society for the Study of Human Development held its seventh biennial meeting on October 28-30, 2011, at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. SSHD is a professional society formed by a group of scholars from multiple disciplines (e.g., medicine, biology, psychology, sociology, economics, and history). The central focus of SSHD is to provide an organization that moves beyond age-segmented scholarly organizations to take an integrative, interdisciplinary approach to ages/stages across the life span, generational and ecological contexts of human development, and research and applications to human development policies and programs.
