The National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families is dedicated to providing timely research findings, tools, and scholar opportunities to advance the capacity of the policy, program, and research fields serving low-income Hispanic children and families.

As part of its efforts, the Center created a Hispanic Center Research Scholars Program to support the work of emerging scholars, especially Hispanic scholars and those from underrepresented academic institutions. As part of this program, the Center will award up to two Hispanic Center Research Scholars awards in 2019. Each Research Scholar will receive a stipend of $7,500 for a 12-month period.

The Hispanic Center Research Scholars Program is open to emerging scholars ranging from advanced graduate students (those currently in their third year or higher of a Ph.D. program), postdocs, and early career scholars (up to 5 years post Ph.D.). ​They seek emerging scholars who demonstrate a strong interest in conducting research with low-income Hispanic populations that will inform programs, policies, and services supporting the well-being of Hispanic children and families.

Learn more about the program and application process below. Interested applicants are required to submit their applications for the 2019 Hispanic Center Research Scholars Program by 5:00 PM ET on May 20, 2019. Candidates will be contacted if they are selected by June 11, 2019. The anticipated start date is August 19, 2019.
