Info Session: Migrations Grants for Faculty
Join us for an information session to learn more about the new cycle of Migrations grants, open to all PI-eligible faculty (including tenured, tenure-track, professors of practice, senior research associates, and clinical-track faculty), irrespective of their college or school. Faculty-led programs and centers within the university are also welcome to apply.
In this call for proposals, there are opportunities for Cornell faculty from any academic discipline to study migration at both the domestic and international levels. With support from the Mellon Foundation’s Just Futures Initiative, we are funding U.S.-focused work that has long-term and discernible benefits addressing racial and immigrant justice on campus and beyond. Research that has a broader international focus may apply for multispecies, interdisciplinary Migrations grants on any subject related to migration.
