Led by Professor Kevin Escudero in the Department of American Studies at Brown University, the Immigrant Student Research Project (ISRP), seeks to understand the role of immigration status in students’ educational experiences in graduate school. In this work we seek to compare students’ experiences and career goals across legal statuses to help inform policies regarding the treatment of legal permanent resident, international, and undocumented graduate students.

We are asking for your help to recruit study participants: graduate students who identify as immigrants to the United States. Student participation in the project consists of completing an online survey, which should take approximately 15 -20 minutes. For their time, students will be provided with a $20 Visa gift card at the conclusion of the survey. If interested, they may also choose to take part in an interview about their experiences as immigrant students, for which they will receive an additional $25 Visa gift card.

Attached is a flyer with more information about the project and a link to the online survey. If you or any students you work with have questions, please feel free to contact the faculty principal investigator Kevin Escudero at or members of the project team at
