The National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families is excited to welcome our inaugural summer fellows, all Ph.D. candidates studying issues related to this population. They’re each working on a project for the Center. Marta Alvira-Hammond, of Bowling Green State University, is studying how emerging (versus traditional) Hispanic communities are equipped to support low-income families. Arya Ansari, of the University of Texas, is examining how early care and education experiences equip Hispanic children for school success. Henry Gonzalez, of the University of Arizona, is studying the influence of fathers and father-figures on Hispanic children. Henry is also working on a concept paper that covers the intersection of the research literature on Hispanic boys and young men and President Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.
