Society for Research in Child Development Joins FABBS

May 23, 2018

FABBS is excited to welcome the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) as a member of our growing coalition of scientific societies. Founded in 1933, SRCD is a multidisciplinary organization of approximately 5500 researchers, practitioners, and human development professionals. The organization was created to “stimulate and support research, to encourage cooperation among individuals engaged in the scientific study of child development, and to encourage applications of research findings.”

As a society, SRCD supports advancing developmental science through an array of biological, cognitive, psychological, social, and cultural perspectives, and is committed to using the knowledge gained through science to improve the well-being of children, families, and communities. SRCD has a small grants program for early career researchers; an awards program for dissertation, early career, and senior scientists; and a grant program for early career success in young children’s mental health as well as a dissertation grant for global early child development. We look forward to working with SRCD in the coming years.
