The National Center for Education Statistics, Institute of Education Sciences announces a new project titled The Language Minority Children Analysis Project, coordinated by the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST). The goal of this project is to encourage research on questions relating to the early learning and educational experiences and outcomes of language minority children in the United States, including their academic achievement, home and school learning environments, and other relevant issues. These analyses will be conducted using existing data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study (ECLS) and the National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES).
Graduate students from education, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, and similar disciplines are encouraged to apply. Funding support for graduate students ranges from $2,000 to $15,000. Initial application materials are due by July 23, 2004.
