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 Faculty 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 doctoral students and other leading scholars.

Broadly defined, the research areas are:

  • Race, Migration, & Diversity
  • Inequality
  • Urbanism & Global Cities
  • Comparative Studies

We are particularly interested in projects that can speak to both humanistic and social scientific concern. 

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.
