It is the mission of Binghamton University's Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (I-GMAP) to work across academic disciplines, to construct bridges between academic researchers and educators and prevention practitioners, and to enhance individual and institutional understanding, commitment, and capacity to prevent genocide and mass atrocity. Please join us and help make "never again" a reality, not simply a slogan.
Your charitable gift directly supports the work of I-GMAP, including the following areas of pressing need:
- Graduate Student Assistantships to support students in the world's first Master of Science in Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention degree program. Fellowships can be awarded based on geographic, disciplinary background or other criteria.
- Global South Scholarships to support conference participation by prevention practitioners and scholars from developing countries at risk of mass atrocities. Scholarships can be targeted to specific countries.
- Education Abroad Scholarships for students in the undergraduate GMAP minor to participate in an instructor-led short-term program to post-conflict locations. Scholarships can be targeted to students with the greatest financial need or using other criteria.
- Field Placement Scholarships for GMAP master's degree students, who will work alongside prevention practitioners in civil society, government or the private sector. Scholarship support can be targeted to certain types of students, field placements in specific countries or regions, or particular types of prevention agencies.
- The National Mechanisms Project which produces periodic reports on the status of national efforts to develop systematic and comprehensive approaches to prevention.
- Online Curriculum Development allowing I-GMAP to make its graduate program available more widely to students on other SUNY campuses and around the world.
- Curriculum Development Grants so that we can build the capacity of faculty across all disciplines within Binghamton University and across the SUNY system to incorporate an atrocity prevention focus in their classes.
- Practitioner Fellowships to expand our ability to host prevention practitioners for an entire semester at Binghamton University.
- Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships to allow promising emerging scholars from a variety of disciplines to engage in path-breaking collaborative research on atrocity prevention.
