Throughout the holiday season, we are encouraging our supporters to read about the lives being impacted by our work. Read on to hear from Eunhae Cho, one of our 2022 DDG awardees!

Eunhae Cho (Pennsylvania State University): “With the TIRF funding, I will also be able to disseminate the research findings in various ways: peer-reviewed articles, such as journal publications and edited academic book chapters; conference presentations, including local, national, and international conferences in the fields of linguistics, education, and family studies; invited talks at local, national, international K-12 schools and higher education institutions; media interviews and articles; and finally, articles in Chinese so parents, children, and youth in Chinese immigrant communities can have access to the stories of their own.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for making this possible. I am thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor, and I am deeply appreciative of your support. This will allow me to focus more on my remaining doctoral journal, especially on writing the dissertation process: data collection, analysis, and writing.

By the end of the study, student participants will either introduce their parents to me or they will interview one of their parents so that I can learn about their child-rearing practices and their social and cultural backgrounds. Parents’ voices are essential both for data analysis and for understanding how familial values play a role in helping determine children’s social relations.

Your generosity will add significant luster to my dissertation project and I am once again appreciative of this honor.”
