The effects of multispecies migration are global. It is more important than ever to engage a broad global public in learning more about how movement shapes our lives, the lives of animals and plants, and beyond.
The Migrations initiative is working toward this goal by providing opportunities for diverse communities to get involved: students of all levels, community college faculty, Cornell researchers, and a broad public.
Summer Pathways Program
Open to undergraduates and recent graduates
Our summer program provides hands-on research training to first-generation students and underrepresented minority graduates who are interested in studying migration and considering graduate school. Applicants do not need to be Cornell students.
From June 11 to 23, selected participants will visit the Cornell University Main Campus in Ithaca and gain research skills, higher education networks, and practical knowledge about the graduate application process and graduate school life. Applications are due April 3.
Migrations Summer Institute
Open to early-career migration scholars
Our annual summer institute, co-sponsored by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, immerses early-career scholars in the study of racism, dispossession, and migration in a collaborative space. Each year, the institute addresses a new topic under the leadership of a faculty researcher.
Undergraduates: Get Involved
Undergraduate students at Cornell play a key role in shaping the content and direction of the Migrations initiative. The Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies offers ways for students to get involved:
Community College Professional Development
Open to community college faculty in upstate New York
In this year-long professional development opportunity, we collaborate with community college faculty fellows to enhance curricular projects that center the connections between racism, dispossession, and migration. Fellows receive $1,000 and are matched with partners, such as corresponding scholars or content resources.
