Inge Wessels awarded the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) Patrice L. Engle Dissertation Grant​ to support her research on barriers and facilitators to engaging in parenting programmes in low-income contexts. This Grant aims to honour the legacy of Patrice L. Engle, a pioneer and leader in global early childhood development, by supporting students interested in a career in global early child development who are doing research in low- or middle-income countries. It includes US $5,000 to support dissertation research and a 2-year student membership to SRCD, which is a multi-disiplinary, non-profit, professional association of human development professionals. The Grant was established by generous donations from the Bernard van Leer Foundation, the Open Society Foundation, and Pat’s family and friends.
