The NYU Migration Network is pleased to announce the launch of the Graduate Student Award for Summer Research on Migration. Three awards of $3000 each will be granted for the summer of 2021 to support outstanding graduate students in their research on migration and mobility. The award funds research or artistic production in an array of academic disciplines, including in the arts and humanities, social sciences, physical and natural sciences, and professional fields (e.g. law, public policy, urban planning, engineering, and business). We welcome research that is innovative in conception and that spans disciplinary boundaries. Research that compares migration dynamics in different geo-political regions is especially encouraged.
The Graduate Student Award for Summer Research on Migration is made possible through generous funding from the Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Asian/Pacific/American Institute, the Center for the Study of Africa and the African Diaspora, Africa House, the Global Asia Project, the Latinx Project, 19 Washington Square North, the Furman Center, and the Urban Democracy Lab. The award supports research and artistic production, including expenses associated with materials and data sources required to complete the project. Due to COVID-related funding restrictions, the 2021 grants will not fund travel or any travel-related expenses. Students enrolled in any NYU graduate program, at any of NYU’s campuses, and having completed at least one semester of coursework, are eligible to apply.
Applications are due on March 29, 2021.
