Participation will help psychologists better understand refugee students’ needs and experiences. The project is also intended to help identify more effective methods for counselors and institutions of higher education to support refugee students in academics, career pursuits and college life.

Each participant will receive a $40 Amazon gift card for answering a series of open-ended questions during a one-hour interview over Zoom.

To be eligible, participants must be at least 19 years old, enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student, and identify as a refugee. Confidentiality will be protected throughout the study.

Interested students should email Neeta Kantamneni, associate professor and principal investigator on the study, at
