New Awards for 2017

The Latino Caucus Biennial Subcommittee received many qualified nominations for our inaugural awards (Early Career and Dissertation), and as a committee, we were enthusiastic to see the innovative work that is being done to understand the development of Latino youth and their families. It was a difficult decision for the committee selecting from such high quality work being done by our Caucus members.
For the early career award, we had two nominees that stood out as exemplifying the research mission of the Caucus and have already made an impact on the field.
Congratulations go to:
2017 Early Career Awards 
Linda Halgunseth
Natalia Palacios
We also had a talented pool of new investigators nominated for dissertation awards, but we chose Dr. Derlan’s work on ethnic identity as especially notable for its contribution to the field.
2017 Dissertation Award
Chelsea Derlan
We commend all the nominees for their excellent work and we thank all the people who nominated them!
