ARC Student Fellowships — Deadline Friday April 17

The Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) is accepting applications from Level II doctoral students for Research Praxis Awards for the upcoming academic year. Their research themes closely match those of many students in the Mapping the Futures graduate course — immigration, inequality, multilingualism, digital education. Below is a link to the application (due April 17), and under the cut is more information.

ARC Student Fellowship Application 2015 (MS Word Download)

As part of its effort to encourage student research, the Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) will be offering a limited number of Research Praxis Awards for the coming academic year 2015-2016. The Awards are valued at $4,000 each for one semester and are for Level II students.

Applications from qualifying students in all fields are welcome, but since Distinguished Visiting Fellows will be working principally on the research themes listed below, students working in those areas may find the opportunity especially valuable.

Students who accept this award must attend weekly ARC seminars on Thursdays from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm.  Do not apply if you are unable to attend the weekly seminars.

Students will work with ARC Distinguished Visiting Fellows from within and without the CUNY system and will be required to attend three (3) research praxis seminars during the semester. The research themes of the Distinguished Fellowship Program for 2015-2016 are:

  • Immigration
  • Inequality
  • Multilingualism
  • Digital Education

In addition to attending the three sessions above, Awardees will be required to do the following:

  • Post  three 400 word blogs on the ARC student research website sharing their research interests and activities with other graduate center students
  • Submit a formal research proposal to a grant agency requesting support for their research project

Deadline for applying is Friday, April 17, 2015.  Students will be notified of the selection committee’s decision by Wednesday, May 20th, 2015.

Nominations for this award should be sent to ARC at:
