The Asian American Studies Program at the University of Maryland, College Park is proud to host the Calvin J. Li Fellowship in Asian American Studies. The Calvin J. Li Fellowship is intended to support a recent PhD with expertise in the issues facing second-generation children/adolescents of immigrants to the United States. A focus of the fellowship program is research on how children of parents from Asian backgrounds navigate family, community, and life in the United States. Li Fellows focus on the challenges facing second-generation youth, identity formation, racial and ethnic representation, acculturation, transnationalism, family dynamics, or closely related topics. Li Fellows also teach courses related to their research for the Asian American Studies Program. In addition, Li Fellows present their research to the University community through public lectures and, in particular, distill research for a lay audience through a series of community-based lectures and workshops.
