Participants Sought for Research on Asian American Students & College Choice

My name is Oiyan Poon, and I am a research fellow at the Institute for Asian American Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston. I am currently conducting a research study to better understand how 1.5 and second generation Asian Americans are informed about applying to and enrolling in post-secondary education. The project seeks to inform practice, policies, and future research on Asian Americans, inequalities, and college access.

In order to participate in the study, you must:

1. Be between the ages of 18 and 23;
2. Not be enrolled in high school;
3. Self-identify as a 1.5 OR 2nd generation Asian American.
       a. 1.5 generation = Identify as an Asian American who immigrated to the U.S. before the age of 12.
       b. 2nd generation = Identify as an Asian American who was born in the U.S. to at least one Asian immigrant parent.

Participants who complete the survey will have the option to enter a raffle to win one of 5 cash gift cards worth $25 each.

If you have any questions, please contact me at or by phone at 617.682.0831.
