CCIS operates a number of academic programs, fellowship opportunities and research initiatives at the forefront of comparative migration research.

These include:

  • Fellowships that allow migration scholars from around the world the opportunity to come to our institute to work on their research, and benefit from the center’s collaborative environment.

  • The CERC Migration Exchange Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for exceptional advanced PhD students
    (3rd year or later), post-doctoral fellows and early career researchers from Ryerson University and UC San Diego to participate in a one-month research exchange.

  • Our undergraduate minor in International Migration Studies for UCSD undergraduate students is only the program of its kind in the United States.
