About the fellowship:
Five winning applicants will receive a fellowship to attend the two-day event and have the opportunity to present on a research topic related to forced displacement and resettlement during the symposium.
The fellowship will support travel and accommodation. The five successful applicants will receive a round-trip flight and arrangements to Dublin, Ireland, to attend the symposium as part of the team representing Boston College on May 7-8 2024.
All Boston College graduate and undergraduate students currently enrolled in the School of Social Work, Law School, Morrissey College of Arts & Science (MCAS), Connell School of Nursing, and Lynch School of Education and Human

Selected students will be invited to the symposium, Bridging the Humanitarian, Peacebuilding, and Development Nexus: Forced Displacement and Resettlement through an Implementation Science Lens, funded by the Boston College Institute for Liberal Arts and the Center for Social Innovation in the School of Social Work.
About the symposium:
The symposium will feature in-person panel sessions focused on implementation science,
MHPSS, and bridging the relief-to-development gap in post-conflict settings. Panelists will include members of key research institutions and community organizations as well as international stakeholders.
Each school at Boston College that receives the fellowship will have the opportunity to present a research topic on the panel titled “Peacebuilding & Preventing Intergenerational Cycles of Violence in the Context of Forced Migration and Displacement,” moderated by Dr. Thomas Crea from Boston College and Dr. Gilian Wylie from Trinity College.
This fellowship will be an opportunity for Boston College students to get connected with global professionals and Trinity College students to discuss the topics of forced displacement and resettlement and learn from varied
experts in the field of global health across the world.
