In 2018 the Monash Population, Migration and Social Inclusion Focus Program is offering two Honours Bursaries (value $3,000) to support students to undertake research that aligns with our thematic research agenda.

Our research agenda includes four thematic pillars of research:

Theme 2: Temporal changes in social relationships, attitudes and social actions in communities experiencing increases in diversity and/or immigrant concentration.

Theme 3: Understanding the human experience of border crossings, and the implementation of regulatory practice, through empirical examinations of irregular migration and border control at the global, regional and national level.

Theme 4: Negotiating settlement for new arrived immigrants and experiences of locality and belonging in contemporary Australia.
