Research Fellowships

Center funding enables undergraduates, graduate students, and professional students to explore archives, conduct ethnographies and oral histories, and to pursue research and field work that contributes to senior essays, master’s theses, doctoral dissertations, and published articles.

The Center provides term-time and summer fellowship funding for Yale students conducting research in the United States and around the world, on topics related to the study of race, indigeneity, and transnational migration.
