With this opportunity, we intend to make five awards in the amount of $5,000 each to be used during the 2019 calendar year. In addition to offering this awards, we will facilitate a learning community that will include bi-monthly meetings for scholars to come together to share their work and also meet with the policymakers and researchers who are working together as part of the NYC Early Childhood Research Network. Recipients of the awards will be expected to support one another and actively participate in the learning community.
