The application period for the the 2024 National Research Center on Poverty and Economic Mobility Early-Career Mentoring Institute (ECMI), supported by the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families, together with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP) and the University of California, Davis’s Center for Poverty & Inequality Research (CPIR), has ended. Accepted applicants will be notified in early march.
