Dina Okamoto Appointed as 2007-2008 William T. Grant Scholar

Dina Okamoto was recently appointed as a 2007-08 William T. Grant scholar to develop research on the adaptation of immigrant and second-generation youth in the US. Dina is part of a class of five scholars this year, and she will receive $350,000 over five years from the William T. Grant Foundation.

Using qualitative and quantitative methods, this research will illuminate the extent to which community-based organizations affect immigrant youth development and the mechanisms that influence educational competence, physical health, and emotional well-being. The project will also provide much needed information about how organizations within immigrant communities work, which can be used to develop effective programs and organizations to improve the lives of young people.
