      ImmigrantChildren Research Fellowships


      The FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP) provides approximately four
      fellowships
      of up to $150,000 each over a maximum period of three-years to study
      issues
      affecting the development of young immigrant children in the United
      States.

      YSP aims to stimulate basic and policy-relevant research focused on the
      early education, health and well-being of immigrant children from birth
      to
      age 10, particularly those who are living in low-income families. Given
      the
      limited research on young immigrant children, proposals focused on
      children
      from birth to age eight are highly encouraged. YSP supports the career
      development of young investigators - from the behavioral and social
      sciences
      or in an allied professional field - to attain tenure or who have
      received
      tenure in the last four years from a college or university in the United
      States.

      Immigrant children are defined as those having at least one parent who
      was
      not born in the United States. These children can be foreign-born and/or
      United States citizens. Although the newcomer experiences of children
      from
      Puerto Rico and the territories of the United States are of interest,
      the
      New American Children Program and the FCD Young Scholars Program focus
      primarily on immigrant children, particularly those who are living in
      low-income families.

      FCD is particularly interested in research that can inform policies
      regarding the health and education needs of young newcomer children.
      Proposals may include research designs for an empirical study, pilot
      work
      for a larger scale research project that will seek funding from other
      public
      and private funders, or analysis of data previously collected.

      Research areas of interest are limited to the following:

      Factors (e.g., individual, familial, cultural, neighborhood)
      contributing to
      both positive and negative outcomes for young immigrant children in
      their
      communities and schools.

      Individual and group identity formation among young children from a
      variety
      of groups living in different environments.

      The experiences of newcomer children in early education, kindergarten,
      and
      elementary school programs. What characteristics of these programs
      foster
      the cognitive, social, and emotional well-being of newcomer children?

      Language development among immigrant children. What are the influences
      of
      different approaches to instruction for English language learners during
      the
      early education and elementary school years on educational achievement?

      Evaluation of the impact of public policies in health and in education
      that
      affect the life prospects of newcomer children. What is the impact of
      policies and practices in health care delivery on child health outcomes?

      Eligibility

      Scholars must have earned their Ph.D. within the last 15 years prior to
      June
      30, 2005 (seven years from completion of residency for M.D.s).
      Applicants
      must hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent in one of the behavioral and social
      sciences or in an allied professional field (e.g., public policy, public
      health, education, social work, nursing, medicine).

      Applicants may either:

      Not have received tenure and hold a full-time, tenure-track faculty
      position
      at an American college or university located in the United States.
      Please
      note tenure equivalent positions are not eligible for the fellowship.

      Have received tenure within the past four years at the time of
      application
      and hold a full-time faculty position at an American college or
      university
      located in the United States. In the event that an applicant is being
      reviewed for tenure at the time of application to the FCD Young Scholars
      Program and is selected to receive the fellowship, evidence that tenure
      has
      been granted must be provided by the college or university to the
      Foundation
      for Child Development before the grant can be made.

      Applicants must be United States citizens, permanent residents, or
      international scholars who are affiliated with an American academic
      institution during the duration of the award. Special consideration will
      be
      given to candidates who are more junior in their careers. Candidates
      from di
      verse backgrounds (e.g., ethnicity, discipline) are encouraged to apply.
      The award is intended to support the individual career development of
      the
      recipient. Proposed research that is structured to include co-principal
      investigators is ineligible.

      Deadline

      Completed proposals must be received in FCD's office on or before
      Tuesday,
      November 1, 2005. The deadline is firm. No email or fax submissions will
      be
      accepted. The review process for the FCD Young Scholars Program is
      separate
      from the review process for FCD. A letter of inquiry is not necessary.
      FCD
      Young Scholars Program proposals must follow the 2006 FCD Young Scholars
      Proposal and Budget Format document.
