In a highly competitive national competition, FCD makes only five
awards each year. With the funding he received with the award,
Gee will examine over the next two years the impact of food
insecurity on children’s developmental outcomes, focusing
particularly on low-income and children of color in the aftermath
of the Great Recession of 2007-09.
The FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP) supports policy- and
practice-relevant research on the development and learning needs
of the nation’s young children growing up under conditions of
poverty and low-income.
