Graduate Student Award for Summer Research on Migration

The NYU Migration Network is pleased to announce the launch of the 2nd annual Graduate Student Award for Summer Research on Migration. Three awards of $3000 each, along with three finalist recognitions of $1000 each, will be granted for the summer of 2022 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, Liberal Studies, Steinhardt, 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 2022 grants will fund research in compliance with NYU travel regulations, which are subject to change. 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. Finalists from previous years are also eligible to apply.

Applications are due on March 11, 2022.

2022 Recipients


Faculty Colloquium for Research Development Award

The NYU Migration Network is pleased to announce the launch of the Faculty Colloquium for Research Development Award. This award combines two forms of support for the development of innovative projects that engage with questions of migration and mobility. It includes (a) $5,000 to fund a workshop or a series of meetings to develop preliminary research directions and related research design; (b) resources for identifying funding and proposal development from the NYU Office of Research Development.  

Proposals for research that spans disciplinary boundaries and that is collaborative (involving more than one researcher) are especially encouraged, as are proposals that link faculty from more than one of NYU’s campuses worldwide.

The Faculty Colloquium for Research Development Award is made possible through the generous support of the Mega-Grants Initiative Seed Fund at NYU.  As part of the requirements of the award, the recipients are expected to use the research that results from the colloquium series to develop and submit a proposal for external funding, and are required to meet at least once with the NYU Office of Research Development for support with proposal development.  The colloquium meeting or meetings must be held over the 2021-2022 academic year. Additionally, as part of that colloquium, the recipients must arrange at least one event that is open to the public and in which they will present their research project.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Applications are now due May 31, 2021
