Global Migrations Summer Grants
Global Migrations Program
The Global Migrations Program is a new, grant-funded initiative at Hampshire College to rethink old paradigms of knowledge and citizenship in light of historical and contemporary movements of persons across national and cultural boundaries. The program seeks to develop innovative undergraduate curriculum that is responsive to these transnational/cultural movements and the conflicts over identity, community, and citizenship to which they give rise.
The grants support faculty development and student work that attempts to bridge divides between local social/political issues and complex global processes, between the university and the wider communities of which it is a part, and/or across traditional disciplinary and areas studies divides within the academy. The goal of the program is to develop a new community-based model of teaching and learning that engenders not only global literacy, but a sense of global citizenship.
Summer Internship Grants
The Global Migrations Program was accepting student applications for paid internships during the summer of 2009. The final applications were due April 17th 2009.
These internships may include non-profit, non-governmental organizations that work with refugees, migrant workers, new immigrants, and other displaced persons, and which are concerned with transnational migration, human rights, and other social justice issues that arise from the movements of persons across national and cultural boundaries.
These internships offer students opportunities to:
- gain experience working for a non-profit, non-governmental organization
- get paid for work they care about and find interesting
- learn about grant writing, research skills, community organizing, and other aspects of transnational social justice/social change work
Who is eligible?
- Hampshire College students at the Division II or III level
