April 17 2015-2016 Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) Research Praxis Awards

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 Thursday 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:   An application form is attached.  Please let us know if you have any questions.
