ASA Awards 2016-17 Congressional Fellowship to Emerald T. Nguyen
Emerald T. Nguyen is a PhD candidate with research interests in the areas of immigrant integration, family and health. She has been awarded the 2016-17 ASA Congressional Fellowship.
The ASA, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, brings a PhD-level sociologist to Washington, DC, to work as a staff member on a congressional committee or in a congressional office. This intensive twelve month (September to September) experience reveals the intricacies of the policy making process to the sociological fellow, and shows the usefulness of sociological data and concepts to policy issues.
