One of the objectives of the National African American Child & Family Research Center is to build research capacity among African American students, develop research infrastructure, and conduct actual research within African American communities.
The Emerging Scholars program is a one-year-long research internship designed to increase the knowledge and skills of students interested in community-based participatory research around economic/social mobility, early childhood education, childcare, fatherhood, or social determinants of health for African American children and families. Scholars receive personalized cross-disciplinary training and mentoring along with a 20,000 stipend and additional financial support for professional development and travel to present research findings.
As a means of equipping undergraduate and graduate students in NAACFRC’s priority research areas, we offer Capacity Building Webinars to increase knowledge and skills.
