Support Student Research through the Cambio Center Research Fund
The Cambio Center Research Fund is used to support graduate student research on Latinos and immigrants. As friends of the Cambio Center know, the research agenda of the Cambio Center focuses on applied research designed to improve community well-being by better understanding and supporting the integration of newcomers and immigrants. Students work in partnership with an expert faculty member during a semester, with clear goals for outputs and results. All funds raised will go directly towards supporting the research efforts of these students.
