As part of its commitment to support interdisciplinary and collaborative research in the fields of Migration and Diaspora Studies, the Migration and Diaspora Studies Initiative at Carleton University welcomes applications from new and returning graduate students for the 2019 TD Graduate Fellowship in Migration and Diaspora Studies.
