In 2021, the R.F. Harney Program in Ethnic, Immigration, and Pluralism Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy launched the R.F. Harney Graduate Research Fellowship in Ethnic, Immigration, and Pluralism Studies, a new interdisciplinary initiative designed to support research by University of Toronto graduate students working at the intersection of citizenship, migration, and diversity. The one-year Fellowship is open to outstanding students enrolled in an accredited graduate or professional degree program at the University of Toronto whose research interests complement and strengthen the mission and network of the Harney Program.

Such topics include, but are not limited to, the relationship between mobility and global inequality; the surge of biometric borders and new technologies of migration control; disruptions to existing forms of membership and belonging; and the impact of the global pandemic on the definition of who belongs and on conceptualizations of solidarity and diversity at the urban, national and transnational levels.

Fellows carry the designation “R.F. Harney Graduate Research Fellow in Ethnic, Immigration and Pluralism Studies” and receive a one-year fellowship award of $1,000.00.

Harney Graduate Research Fellows participate fully in the intellectual life of the Harney Program and to help develop the Harney Graduate Network by contributing to varied academic activities, such as reading groups, work-in-progress sessions, blog posts, and the dissemination of research.
