Columbia University in the City of New York

Russian Studies and Policy Program

In the fall of 2016, facilitated by a generous grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Harriman Institute launched an intensive project to expand the study of Russia across the social sciences at Columbia University and the greater New York university community. The New York Russia Public Policy Seminar Series is the centerpiece of this program and builds on Harriman’s rich tradition of policy outreach to bring scholars and policy-makers together to discuss contemporary issues of critical importance to the U.S. and Russia. The series includes invited talks, panel discussions, and seminars aimed at engaging graduate students and the wider public on topics relating to Russia.

Call for Proposals

Carnegie/Harriman Research Grants for Ph.D. Students in the Social Sciences

Thanks to generous support from Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Harriman Institute of Columbia University announces a competition for grants of up to $12,000 each for Ph.D. candidates in the social sciences who are conducting research on Russia. These grants are designed to improve research and training of Ph.D. students whose dissertations include a focus on Russia. Research grants may support training, data collection, dissertation research, or research projects unrelated to the dissertation. Projects that involve some form of collaboration with scholars based in Russia will receive special attention, although this is not a condition of receiving the grant.
