Global Migrations Summer Internship Grants assist students with the costs of interning at non-profit, non-governmental organizations that work with refugees, migrant workers, new immigrants, and other displaced persons, and/or are concerned with transnational migration, human rights, citizenship, security, and other social justice issues that arise from the movements of persons across national and cultural boundaries.
- Global Migrations is a grant-funded initiative at Hampshire College aimed at rethinking old paradigms of knowledge, citizenship, and security in the light of historical and contemporary movements of persons across national and cultural boundaries.
- Global Migrations supports an 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, developing not only global literacy, but also a sense of global citizenship.
