New Research Highlight: RSF-Funded Research on Immigration and Immigrant Integration

November 14, 2022

Since 2016, RSF has collaborated with the Carnegie Corporation of New York to support research that builds on the findings of the 2015 National Academies report on The Integration of Immigrants into American Society, which was funded in part by RSF. To date, the jointly funded special initiative has made 39 grants, funded two issues of our open-access journal, and supported three Summer Institutes in Migration Research Methods for early career scholars. Building on the success of the initiative, RSF has been invited by the Carnegie Corporation to submit a proposal for an additional $500,000 (matched by an equivalent amount from RSF) to extend this collaboration through 2025.

Grantees include economists, political scientists, and sociologists. They have examined topics such as intergenerational mobility, focusing on the role of legal status; naturalization, citizenship voting, and collective ways of achieving representation; social identity and what it means to be American; and the interplay of politics and policy in immigrant integration during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
