Abstract: The Young Scholars Program (YSP) is designed to to study issues
affecting the development of young immigrant children in the United States.
It 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
The Foundation for Child Development 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. Contact Address: Foundation for Child Development
