ICS is committed to the development of future scholarship and young researchers who are engaged in innovative discourse and work on issues impacting the Caribbean Diaspora and the Caribbean. The Emerging Scholars Program is aimed at creating a network of up and coming scholars whose work will make an impact on the Caribbean Diaspora and region.
The program consists of:
A. Caribbean Futures Dissertation Project: this project will provide a platform for emerging scholars to share their research, and also to leverage ICS' resources to obtain data for research.
B. Emerging Scholars Webinar Series: Emerging scholars will be given the opportunity to discuss their research (in progress or recently completed) and policy or economic and social implications through the young scholars webinar series.
Interested participants should be:
· Currently enrolled in a graduate (Masters, professional –JD, MBA, MD, etc, doctoral) program or recently graduated (1-3 years from graduation date) from such a program.
· Under the age of 35
· Research Interests must be related to the Caribbean Diaspora (not limited to the Diaspora in the United States) and the Caribbean region.
