RSF-Gates Foundation Pipeline Grants Awarded to Emerging Scholars

The Russell Sage Foundation, in partnership with the Economic Mobility and Opportunity program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is pleased to announce twenty-one awards made in the second round of their Pipeline Grants Competition.  Together, these research projects by emerging scholars represent a wide range of innovative research on economic mobility and access to opportunity in the United States. The RSF-Gates Pipeline Grants initiative is designed to support early- and mid-career tenure-track scholars who are underrepresented in the social sciences and to promote diversity broadly, including racial, ethnic, gender, disciplinary, institutional, and geographic diversity.

Among the scholars funded is Professor Norma Fuentes-Mayorga, of the Latin American & Latin@ Studies Program. Congratulations!

Yana Kucheva (CUNY, City College) and Norma Fuentes-Mayorga (CUNY, City College) will study mixed-status Latino families to examine how the social safety net contributed to new inequalities during the pandemic.
