  Abstract: The goal of the Foundation for Child Development's Young
Scholars Program is to stimulate both basic and policy-relevant research
about the early education, health and well-being of children living in
immigrant families from birth to age ten, particularly those who are living
in low-income families. The program will support young investigators, from
the behavioral and social sciences or in an allied professional field, who
are untenured but in tenure-track positions or who have received tenure in
the last four years from a college or university in the United States.

Research areas of interest are limited to the following:
1. Factors (e.g., individual, familial, cultural, neighborhood) contributing
to both positive and negative outcomes for young immigrant children in their
communities and schools.
2. Individual and group identity formation among young children from a
variety of groups living in different environments.
3. The experiences of newcomer children in early education, kindergarten,
and elementary school programs.
4. Language development among immigrant children.
5. Evaluation of the impact of public policies in health and in education
that affect the life prospects of newcomer children. Contact Address:
