Researchers found that sexual education led to improved health knowledge and decreased teen pregnancy rates in the following year.
The Stanford King Center on Global Development invites proposals from Stanford faculty for multi-faculty initiatives harnessing and developing the university’s distinctive strengths in research on global development and poverty.
Initiatives will be multi-faculty research endeavors that produce well-defined, cutting-edge academic outputs broader than stand-alone research projects. They are envisioned to provide significant “public goods” that could benefit a larger group of faculty and students.
The King Center can physically house initiative post-docs, research assistants, and technical staff, as well as host initiative events (conferences, seminars, internal workshops, etc.).
Proposals that bring together faculty in new ways are encouraged. The proposed work may involve the broad range of disciplines in international development, including but not limited to earth sciences, economics, engineering, medicine, political science, policy, individually or in combination.
