In a new book, MIT’s Ethan Zuckerman asserts that we need to overcome the Internet’s sorting tendencies and create tools to make ourselves ‘digital cosmopolitans.’
The Center for International Studies invites new applications for Mellon-MIT grants to study nongovernmental organizations and forced migration. The deadline is April 3.
These small grants, established by the Inter-University Committee on International Migration and supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, are for applied research and training on refugee issues. Graduate students and faculty may apply. Awards will range from $4,000-$6,000 for graduate student research projects. Faculty and senior researchers may receive awards up to $10,000.
