Arya Ansari receives fellowship and award
Posted: April 22, 2014
PRC trainee, Arya Ansari, has received a summer fellowship at the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families. This fellowship will allow him to collaborate with national experts in Hispanic issues in advancing the understanding of poverty, economic self-sufficiency, and the early care and education usage among Hispanic families. As part of this award, Arya will conduct policy relevant research and connect with other emerging scholars, researchers, and organizations in the area to generate knowledge that informs programming and policy decisions targeting Hispanic populations.
Arya also received an award for the Best Graduate Student Presentation Award at the Society for Research in Human Development 19th Biennial Conference. The award was for a project he has been doing under the mentorship of Dr. Robert Crosnoe examining the reciprocal relations among parents’ support for early learning, children’s academic skills, and preschool enrollment.
Congratulations to Arya!
