Call for Applications: 2020 Research Scholars Program


The goal of the Research Scholars Program is to support and expand the pipeline of emerging scholars, including those from historically underrepresented populations, pursuing research on Hispanic children and families that can inform programs, policies, and services to promote the social and economic well-being of Hispanic children and families.

The National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families (Center) invites advanced doctoral students (those with ABD status), and early career scholars (up to 5 years post-Ph.D.) to submit applications for our Research Scholars Program. Up to two awards will be given to scholars interested in pursuing research in one of the Center’s four research priority areas: (1) fatherhood, family structure, and family dynamics; (2) early care and education; (3) poverty reduction and self-sufficiency; and/or (4) cross-cutting topics. Scholars will work remotely on a project with a Center mentor for approximately one day a week for 12 months and will be a part of a collaborative research team. Each Scholar will receive a $7,500 stipend. Applications are due March 18, 2020 by 5:00 PM ET.
