Bueker Receives Grant from Spencer Foundation

Catherine Simpson Bueker, Associate Professor and Chair of Emmanuel College's Sociology Department, has received a $49,745 research grant from the Spencer Foundation in the category of Education and Social Opportunity.

Catherine Simpson Bueker, Associate Professor and Chair of Emmanuel College's Sociology Department, has received a grant from the Spencer Foundation in the amount of $49,745 for her research project, "The Intersection of Residential Arrangements and Schooling: A Comparison of Three Groups of Lower Income Students of Color in a High Income School District." The award is from the Spencer Foundation's Small Research Grants program in the area of Education and Social Opportunity. Dr. Bueker will use the funding to survey young women of color who were residents, commuters and boarders at a public school in an affluent community. She hopes through her research to better understand the social, emotional and academic experiences of lower-income women of color who experienced the same elite public high school, but distinct residential situations, for the sake of gaining insight into how the residential interacted with the educational. The research will be conducted between November 2014 and August 2016.

The Spencer Foundation (www.spencer.org) was established in 1962 by Lyle M. Spencer. Since 1971 the Foundation has made grants totaling approximately $250 million. The Foundation is intended, by Spencer's direction, to investigate ways in which education, broadly conceived, can be improved around the world. It is thus committed to supporting high-quality investigation of education through its research programs and to strengthening and renewing the educational research community through its fellowship and training programs and related activities.
