A project funded by the PIRE program (Partnerships for International Research and Education) of the US National Science Foundation.

Success in integrating the children of immigrants-the second generation-is of enormous consequence for the United States and other economically advanced societies that have received millions of international migrants since the 1950s. Education systems will play a crucial role in this process. In fact, the second generation now constitutes more than half of the student body in many schools in Europe and North America, presenting them with new challenges.

"The Children of Immigrants in Schools" is a three-year research and fellowship program designed to improve our understanding of the role of educational institutions and policy in the integration of children of immigrants and to train a cohort of young scholars to conduct international comparative research.

Richard Alba of the University at Albany, SUNY, is the lead Principal Investigator for the program, which is coordinated by the Social Science Research Council
