About Our Awards

The Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) invites tenured and tenure-track scholars both within and outside of CUNY to apply for our Distinguished Scholar Awards. These scholars enter a stimulating interdisciplinary environment in which they conduct their own research, access the GC’s research centers and institutes, and collaborate with other leading scholars.

Broadly defined, the research areas are:

  • Race, Migration, & Diversity
  • Inequality
  • Global Urbanism
  • Collective Memory

Distinguished Awards fall into two categories:

Distinguished Visiting Scholars

For scholars who are not employed by the City University of New York. A Distinguished Visiting Scholar will receive an office, computer, and access to The Graduate Center’s academic infrastructure. Scholars can stay for one or two semesters, or for a shorter period. Depending on the duration of stay, travel costs to and from the fellowship can be reimbursed for the most economical fare only (up to maximum of $3,000) following the submission of the required documentation.

Distinguished CUNY Scholars

For tenured and tenure-track faculty at one of the campuses of the City University of New York, excluding central line faculty at the Graduate Center. A Distinguished CUNY Scholar will receive course buyouts up to a maximum of 3 course releases for one semester.
