The Institute for Immigration, Globalization, and Education (IGE) at UCLA is excited to announce an extension of the UndocuScholars Project and a Request for Proposals for collaborative research projects between researchers and organizations that provide services to undocumented students in higher education.
As an extension of the UndocuScholars Project launched in 2014 at UCLA, we are seeking to engage students, institutional agents, community advocacy partners, and scholars to create and build on effective and sustainable best practices for undocumented students in higher education. Now more than ever, it is imperative to mobilize in solidarity with undocumented students at the intersections of research, policy, and practice to address the barriers these students face in navigating higher education.
The UndocuScholars Project is initiating this Request for Proposals (RFP) to support collaborative research projects between researchers and organizations that provide services to undocumented students in higher education. Our objective is to: 1) establish formal relationships between researchers and organizations, 2) help organizations strengthen their research capacity and establish a culture of inquiry that will improve their use of research to inform their work, and 3) help researchers think about their own work in the context of real world problems in order to promote more applied and actionable research. Grants will be provided in the amount of $15,000 for the duration of January 5th, 2018 through January 4th, 2019. If you are an organization that is seeking to connect with a researcher for this proposal, we are happy to help connect you. Please email us at email@example.com to start that conversation.
