The Center for the Study of International Migration (CSIM) is pleased to announce a new, interdisicplinary program designed to support research by UCLA graduate students working on international migration. Applicants are encouraged from graduate students enrolled in PhD programs across the disciplines but especially those in the social sciences as well as professional schools (e.g., Luskin, GSEIS, Public Health, Anderson, Medicine). The program will entail the award 10 to 12 stipends in the $2-5,000 range, with need taken into account. Applicants should submit a two page research proposal, clearly stating the research question, the methodology to be used, the plan to be pursued over the course of the 2020-21 academic year, and (if necessary) a brief list of references (no more than five). Your submission should also include a one paragraph of your funding situation for the current academic year. One letter of reference from a faculty member will also be required. 

Applications can be submitted here and are due by Monday, October 5 at 11:59PM. A selection of awardees will be made by Monday, October 19. The stipend will then be released as soon as possible. We urge awardees to attend the CSIM speaker series. This fall will feature a weekly series of book talks, starting on Friday, October 2, at 1 pm. The full program can be found here.

Awardees will be expected to present a report on their research at workshops to be scheduled in the spring.

For further information, please contact Professor Roger Waldinger ( or Professor Marjorie Orellana (
