For graduate students and pre-tenure scholars interested in acquiring quantitative skills.
The Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is offering funds to support summer training in quantitative methods and data analysis for graduate students and pre-tenure scholars in political science.
The following scholarships provide a tuition waiver to the four-week sessions of the 2019 ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. From late-June through mid-August 2019, the ICPSR Summer Program will offer two consecutive four-week sessions on the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor. The four-week sessions are an immersive learning experience in which participants receive hands-on training in a variety of research methods while building a community of friends, collaborators, and future colleagues. Four-week courses include introductory and advanced regression analysis, time series analysis, Bayesian analysis, rational choice theory, SEM, MLE, game theory, and more.
The scholarship application deadline is Sunday, March 31, 2019. For more information, including eligibility criteria and application materials, visit the ICPSR Summer Program’s Scholarships page or contact the Summer Program at email@example.com.
In addition to the scholarships offered by ICPSR, the College of Arts & Sciences is setting aside a small pool of competitive funds to help support up to three students ($2,500 each) who wish to attend up to one, four-week session of the ICPSR summer program. To apply, interested students should send a letter stating how the program will enhance their education and what they hope to achieve with this additional training. The student’s application should also include a CV and a letter of recommendation from the department’s Director of Graduate Studies. Letters should be addressed to Dean Morton O’Kelly and application packets sent to the attention of Assistant Dean Brian Orefice, firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is Wednesday, April 24, 2019.
