ImmigrantChildren Research Fellowships
The FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP) provides approximately four
of up to $150,000 each over a maximum period of three-years to study
affecting the development of young immigrant children in the United
YSP aims to stimulate basic and policy-relevant research focused on the
early education, health and well-being of immigrant children from birth
age 10, particularly those who are living in low-income families. Given
limited research on young immigrant children, proposals focused on
from birth to age eight are highly encouraged. YSP supports the career
development of young investigators - from the behavioral and social
or in an allied professional field - to attain tenure or who have
tenure in the last four years from a college or university in the United
Immigrant children are defined as those having at least one parent who
not born in the United States. These children can be foreign-born and/or
United States citizens. Although the newcomer experiences of children
Puerto Rico and the territories of the United States are of interest,
New American Children Program and the FCD Young Scholars Program focus
primarily on immigrant children, particularly those who are living in
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
for a larger scale research project that will seek funding from other
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)
both positive and negative outcomes for young immigrant children in
communities and schools.
Individual and group identity formation among young children from a
of groups living in different environments.
The experiences of newcomer children in early education, kindergarten,
elementary school programs. What characteristics of these programs
the cognitive, social, and emotional well-being of newcomer children?
Language development among immigrant children. What are the influences
different approaches to instruction for English language learners during
early education and elementary school years on educational achievement?
Evaluation of the impact of public policies in health and in education
affect the life prospects of newcomer children. What is the impact of
policies and practices in health care delivery on child health outcomes?
