On April 27 and 28, CRF will take part in the annual UMassGives campaign to raise funds to support their celebrated Student Awards program. An unprecedented number of students have applied for funding through CRF this spring, highlighting the vital role outside financial awards play in supporting student research. Our goal for UMassGives is to raise $5,000 to increase our support for these student researchers through fellowships and awards. All gifts will fund students directly.
CRF supports UMass Amherst undergraduate and graduate students interested in family research with travel grants, dissertation and pre-dissertation fellowships, and undergraduate awards. Students receiving awards also participate in our Student Scholars Program, which mirrors our faculty Family Research Scholars Program. By providing funding, help with methodology, feedback and ongoing mentoring, CRF enables student scholars to pursue valuable research that could inform policy and practice in a wide range of family related areas, including: school readiness, child development, family violence, aging, immigration policies, college success, and much more.
