The DHS Fellows Program is an important component of the capacity-strengthening strategy of The DHS Program.  The objective of the Fellows Program is to increase capacity of university faculty from DHS countries and to build long-term institutional sustainability for universities to train students and faculty to further analyze DHS data.

The primary objectives of The DHS Fellows Program are as follows:

  • To teach Fellows to analyze and conduct research using DHS datasets
  • To strengthen skills that Fellows will use to integrate DHS data in teaching
  • To increase the ability of Fellows to strengthen the capacity of others for using DHS data at their home universities

Fellows-mapSince 2011, the Fellows Program has trained about 100 researchers from over 30 universities in 18 DHS countries in Africa, Asia, and Middle East.

The Program provides intensive mentorship to teams of three university faculty members that are selected on a competitive basis from four to six universities every year. The fellowship includes two separate workshops and preparation of publication-quality research papers with mentoring from DHS Program researchers.

Between 2011 and 2017, Fellows have produced 39 high-quality working papers, most of which have been published in peer-reviewed journals. In addition to original research projects, Fellows are also required to design and implement a range of internal capacity strengthening activities at their home universities. Over the years, DHS Fellows have implemented their own capacity strengthening activities in various forms at their home universities and have contributed to the increased use of DHS data in academia in developing countries.
