All right, friends. My pal Oiyan is asking for your help. She is currently writing a chapter for an upcoming book on graduate students of color, and is looking for Asian American Ph.D students to take her online survey. Here are the details, in her own words:
Dear Angry Asian Man Reader:

Please help me out with my research project. I'm writing a chapter for an upcoming book on the experiences of current Asian American doctoral students and former Ph.D. students. It will be in a book on Graduate Students of Color, and it's the "token" chapter on Asian Americans. So, please help me represent! Folks who complete the survey will be eligible to win a gift certificate for the iTunes online store.

To be eligible to participate, you must meet the following criteria:

1. Identify as Asian American - a person with ethnic/ancestral roots in South Asia (Indian sub-continent), the Philippines, Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc.; or ethnically Hmong, Mien, Chaam, etc.), or East Asia (China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc.)
2. Be a U.S. citizen or resident (not on an international student visa)
3. Be at least 18 years old

a) Currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program
