GC: Doctoral Student Research Grant Program
The mission of the Doctoral Student Research Grant Program is to foster a research-oriented academic culture among Ph.D. students by: (a) providing incentives for students to model and meet, early in their careers, the requirements for succeeding in the competition for funds by clearly defining a problem, a project, and a realistic budget; (b) providing an occasion for faculty-student mentoring relationships that are oriented around the concrete problems of proposing, planning for, and executing research; and (c) furthering student professional progress by providing funds for pre-doctoral research publications, presentations, and professional networking.
For Competition #10, applicants may submit a budget between $250 and $1,500. However, keep in mind that you won’t necessarily get as much as you’ve requested.
Applications for Round #10 will be accepted between Nov. 1, 2014, and Jan. 31, 2015, with the award period lasting from June 1, 2015, to May 31, 2016.

GC: Cuba and Its Exile: Political Generations
The Bildner Center presents Cuba and Its Exile: Political Generations.
University of Michigan
Philip Kasinitz, Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center and Hunter College, CUNY
From the Bildner Center: “In this talk, Professor Silvia Pedraza argues that to understand Cubans both in the island and in exile, social scientists need to take into account not only the usual dimensions of social class, race, ethnicity, and gender, but also political generations. As defined by Karl Mannheim and others, political generations are constituted by people of the same age who, in their adolescence, experienced dramatic historical events that marked their consciousness. Pedraza analyzes the various political generations that emerged over time in the Cuban revolution and the creation of its exile community.”
