With fund­ing from the Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion, NORC at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Chica­go has select­ed three researchers of col­or to receive $10,000 each. The win­ning schol­ars, who are all in the ear­ly stages of their career, will uti­lize Mak­ing Con­nec­tions data sets to advance knowl­edge relat­ed to low-income fam­i­lies, their chil­dren and communities.

The award recip­i­ents and their win­ning research pro­pos­als are:

  • Hen­ry Gon­za­les of Ari­zona State Uni­ver­si­ty in Tempe, Arizona
    Cre­cien­do en mi bar­rio: Under­stand­ing the role of neigh­bor­hood qual­i­ty in the well-being of chil­dren in Lati­no families”
     
  • Zoe­lene Valen­zuela Hill of Duke Uni­ver­si­ty in Durham, North Carolina
    Pro­files of par­ents who are (dis)connected to ear­ly edu­ca­tion services”
     
  • Eri­ka Niwa of Brook­lyn Col­lege in New York, New York
    The spaces between: A lon­gi­tu­di­nal exam­i­na­tion of par­ents’ per­cep­tions of neigh­bor­hood cohe­sion and child well-being”

These awards were made pos­si­ble thanks to the Foundation’s Emerg­ing Schol­ars Ini­tia­tive, which is part of its Expand­ing the Bench® ini­tia­tive and aims to offer researchers and eval­u­a­tors of col­or oppor­tu­ni­ties to con­duct a sec­ondary analy­sis using a Casey-sup­port­ed data set.
