2022 Grants for Cornell Faculty Studying Migration

Apply by January 31

Migrations is a multi-species phenomena emerging from dynamic socio-ecological systems, as well as driving changes in those systems. Whether your research is people focused and community engaged or studies animals and environments, we want to fund innovative work that spans disciplinary boundaries. 

With support from the Mellon Foundation Just Futures Initiative, we are especially interested in funding research and engagement that centers the connections between racism, dispossession, and migration in interdisciplinary, innovative, and impactful ways.

Watch the Migrations Grants Info Session

On December 13, we held a faculty information session about our current call for proposals. Shannon Gleeson and Eric Tagliacozzo, the Cornell Migrations co-directors, addressed questions about priorities, selection criteria, budgets, and other guidance on how to prepare a successful application.
