Albany, NY — The Institute on Immigrant Integration’s Research & Policy (III-RP) at the Rockefeller Institute of Government is seeking candidates for its 2024 Fellowship on Immigrant Integration. Three graduate fellows will be selected to participate in conducting research and policy analysis at III-RP. The goal of the graduate Fellowship is to prepare the next generation of immigrant integration researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.

The Fellowship will provide an opportunity to graduate students to deepen their understanding of (a)the contextual factors that have the most/ least influence on integration outcomes, (b) the impact of local, state, and federal policies on integration of foreign-born New Yorkers, and (c) models of integrating immigrants in the economic, social, and civic fabric of communities.

Fellows on Immigrant Integration will spend the fall 2024 semester working alongside researchers, practitioners, and policymakers engaging in the following activities:

  1. Collect data using a wide range of research tools to fill the knowledge gap on immigrant integration.
  2. Produce policy and research briefs that analyze determinants of immigrant integration and their policy implications.

The Fellowship is an intensive semester-long program from September 2024 through December 2024. Fellows will work 20 hours per week from Monday through Thursday at III-RP. A stipend of $5,000 will be awarded to each fellow during the Semester. Fellows conduct their work virtually and work closely with III-RP staff. Only graduate students enrolled full-time in a SUNY or CUNY graduate program are eligible to apply.
