Foundation Seeks Young Scholars to Study Immigrant Children

8/16/2005:   The Foundation for Child Development is looking for young scholars to contribute to basic and policy-relevant research focused on the early education, health, and well-being of immigrant children in the United States, particularly those living in low-income families. The Foundation's Young Scholar Program provides approximately four fellowships for up to three-years to study issues affecting the development of young U.S. immigrant children. The deadline to apply is November 1, 2005.

Applicants must hold a PhD or its equivalent in the behavioral and social sciences or in an allied professional field. Research proposals may include research designs for an empirical study, pilot work for a larger-scale research project seeking funding from other public and private funders, or analysis of data previously collected.
