A new report by
the Pew Hispanic Center details the growing flow of remittances regularly
sent by six million immigrants residing across the United States to
their relatives in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Ecuador.
Authored by the Pew Hispanic Center's director, Roberto Suro, findings
reveal the growing importance of these remittances to large portions
of citizens in those countries, and the role of remittances in spurring
migration from Latin America. The report is based on information collected
from 11,000 individuals living in the United States and Latin America
in field research jointly sponsored by the Pew Hispanic Center and
the Multilateral Investment Fund of the Inter-American Development
Bank, as well as from The 2003 National Survey of Latinos recently
carried out by the Pew Hispanic Center and the Kaiser Family Foundation
in the United States. To download a copy of the report, please visit

The Gastón Institute’s Latino Leadership Opportunity
Program (LLOP) provides leadership and public policy training
for undergraduate students. Through this program, students gain
research analysis skills, learn how public policy is created,
develop proficiency in public speaking, enhance leadership skills,
and build strong teamwork abilities. This year’s students
will present summaries of their research projects. Their research
investigates bi-raciality and personal identity, teen pregnancy,
community-based organizations and Dominican culture, low college
graduate rates, post-partum cultural traditions and practices,
bilingual education, health care, and bi-cultural identity as
a predictor for academic success and positive mental health.
There will be a short ceremony following the program to recognize
the students who participated in LLOP. LLOP students are Marisol
Cruz, Ana Milena Diaz, Johnny Giraldo, Maria Moreno, Zamuhua
Moreno, Yudy Muneton, Yolanda Ortiz, and Sherly Torres, and the

The NIH has undertaken a major agency wide initiative, called the Roadmap, to
identify major opportunities and gaps in health research that no single
institute at NIH could tackle alone but that the agency as a whole must
address to make the biggest impact on the progress of health research.
A series of funding initiatives will be issued in fiscal year 2004 and
beyond that seek research to fill these gaps. Some of the initiatives
will focus on the behavioral and social sciences. Many are written to
be broadly inclusive of the full range of disciplines. Please take advantage
of these many funding opportunities--and encourage your colleagues to
do so as well. A description of the Roadmap can be found at: http://nihroadmap.nih.gov/.
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
(NICHD), the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the
Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the National Institute of Diabetes
and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), the National Institute of
Mental Health (NIMH), the National Institute on Aging (NIA), and the
National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) invite qualified researchers
to submit research grant applications on the demography and social science
of race and ethnicity in the United States. The goal of this program
announcement (PA) is to encourage research that will improve understanding
of race and ethnicity in social science and demographic research. Demographic
and social aspects of race and ethnicity include issues related to understanding
how the changing composition and conceptualization of race and ethnicity
are affecting the United States socially, economically, and demographically,
including how increasing racial and ethnic diversity are affecting population
health and health disparities; issues related to the development of racial
and ethnic identity and to interactions between racial/ethnic identification
and demographic, health, and other outcomes; and issues related to the
measurement of race and ethnicity, including racial and ethnic self-identification.
The deadline to apply for this funding is February 01, 2004, June 01,
2004, and October 01, 2004. For more information visit: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-04-017.html.
