Grant Description
Opportunity for USA, Canada, and International early-career researchers and Ph.D. students to participate in a workshop discussing issues related to migration. The purpose of the workshop is to study the factors that influence migration and the connection between migration, health, and development. The workshop will take place at the University of California, Berkeley.

SIMRM 2023 will focus on interviewing as a migration research methodology. Asking people about their thoughts and lives is one of the most effective and efficient ways to collect data, providing information on self-reported attitudes, beliefs, and actions. Indeed, interviewing is one of the most widespread methods in the social sciences and population studies. Interview data can be collected during experiments and representative population surveys or from semi-structured and in-depth conversations during field research. But asking questions as a research technique is also fraught with methodological, substantive, and ethical challenges. Across different types of interviews, researchers must contend with similar issues of recall bias, incomplete or inaccurate information, socially desirable responses, and attention to how the particular dynamics of collecting data can influence the content and quality of interview data (whether data are collected face-to-face or synchronously by phone or video, or asynchronously via computer, cell phone, or paper-based surveys).


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Participation is restricted to Ph.D. students, postdoctoral or early-career researchers, and untenured faculty within 5 years from their Ph.D. who do empirical research on migration. It is open to researchers in the social sciences, professional schools (e.g., Education, Public Policy), or humanities (including digital humanities) who have sufficient training and background to succeed.

The primary recruitment pool is universities, but the Institute welcomes applications from researchers in government or non-profit organizations. There are no restrictions based on citizenship, country of study, or country of employment. Those who might not otherwise be eligible for support under federal funding guidelines will be supported through the generosity of the Russell Sage Foundation.
