CRN Students

CRN_Students creates a network of undergraduate and graduate students interested in exploring a variety of issues surrounding childhood and/or youth.  This Collaborative Research Network is a platform for students to develop opportunities for collaboration and mentoring with emerging and established scholars in the field. CRN_Students is also a platform to share ideas, works-in-progress, conference panels, and other resources to advance scholarship. We encourage students at different stages of their undergraduate and graduate careers to join this group in order to build a network that increases student participation in ACYIG.

Potential topics include but are not limited to: fellowship opportunities, literature reviews, challenges of doing research with children and youth, collaborative research projects and writing, job applications process, mentoring, and conference proposals. Overall, the goal of the CRN_Students is to support the scholarship of undergraduate and graduate students and help them launch their careers in a range of applied and scholarly settings.
