Ethnicity, Migration, Rights Thesis Research Grant 
 

The Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights (EMR) awards summer grants to assist Harvard juniors with research for a senior honors thesis. The department(s) in which the thesis will be written is open so long as research addresses one or more areas of ethnicity, migration, human rights, and/or indigeneity. Applicants may be pursuing EMR as a secondary field, but this is not a requirement. Grantees must spend a minimum of six weeks engaged in research activities. Special consideration will be given to projects for which there are fewer sources of funding offered through other campus entities (e.g., projects requiring domestic travel).
