Immigration Fellows Program

The Immigration Research Fellows Program offers advanced-level doctoral students at Harvard University the opportunity to receive additional training and support for one academic year. During their time as Fellows, scholars will participate in a bi-weekly colloquia series, present and receive feedback on their work, and contribute to the initiative’s other intellectual activities.

Each year we will select up to eight Fellows across various disciplines who are working on dissertations related to issues of immigrant incorporation or immigration policy. Fellows will receive $5,000 in financial support and form a cohort that meets regularly throughout the academic year. The Fellows Program also provides professional development opportunities, job market support, and ongoing mentoring.

In addition, in 2020-2021, we are delighted to host several non-resident IIH non-stipendary Fellows.
