The Russell Sage Foundation/Carnegie Corporation is accepting proposals for its initiative on “Immigration and Immigrant Integration” to support innovative research on the effects of race, citizenship, legal status and politics, political culture and public policy on outcomes for immigrants and for the native-born of different racial and ethnic groups and generations.
This initiative falls under RSF’s Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration Program and represents a special area of interest within the core program, which continues to encourage proposals on a broader set of issues.
For over 25 years, RSF has supported immigration research that has made significant contributions to the study of:

- immigrant integration and intergenerational mobility,
- political incorporation,
- the causes and consequences of immigration to new areas of settlement
This research has shown the significant progress made by immigrants and their children, with immigrants becoming more like the native-born over time, and with second and later generations becoming more like other native-born Americans than their parents were.

- Legal Status: Legal status represents a significant barrier to integration and economic progress, exacerbated by the criminalization of undocumented status and increased deportations since 1996. Many of the unauthorized have lived in the U.S. for at least a decade, and nearly half are the parents of minor children, most of whom are U.S.-born. Thus, legal status affects citizen children and spouses as well, with the effects varying with geography due to different state and local laws and institutions.
- Naturalization and Citizenship: Millions of immigrant residents are eligible to become citizens, but naturalization rates in the U.S. are low compared to similar immigrant-receiving countries like Australia and Canada.
- Mixed-Ancestry, Ethnic Identity, and Integration: A pan-ethnic label and identity (for example, African American, Latino/Hispanic, Asian American) includes many ethnicities, national origins and languages for groups that differ greatly in their economic and social status.
- Race, Religion and Inequality: A recent NAS report on immigrant integration found that patterns of immigrant integration are shaped by race, with black immigrants and their descendants experiencing a slower rate of integration than native-born non-Hispanic whites.
- Politics, Political Culture, and Public Policy: Both politics and immigration policies play an important role in American life.
- All applicants (both PIs and Co-PIs) must have a doctorate. In rare circumstances, RSF may consider applications from scholars who do not hold a doctorate but can demonstrate a strong career background that establishes their ability to conduct high-level, peer-reviewed scholarly research. Students may not be applicants.
- RSF particularly encourages early career scholars to apply for Presidential grants. All nationalities are eligible to apply and applicants do not have to reside in the U.S., but the focus of the proposed research project must be on the U.S. as per their mission.
