Scholarship for Researchers in Sociology

Clifford C. Clogg Scholarship

Fee Waiver for the ICPSR Summer Program

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) offers several fee-waiver scholarships to support advanced graduate students who want to participate in the ICPSR Summer Program’s four-week sessions. The first four-week session runs from June 22-July 17, 2015, and the second four-week session runs from July 20-August 14, 2015. These four-week sessions include a total of 39 workshops and lectures that meet for one to two hours daily, Monday through Friday, on the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Four-week courses range from introductory-level statistics and data analysis to multiple regression to more advanced statistical methods, including maximum likelihood estimation, applied Bayesian modeling, network analysis, time series analysis, as well as workshops on multilevel models, causal inference, and race and ethnicity. You can find a full list of our four-week courses here.

The Clogg Scholarship is intended for current students in Sociology and Political Science Ph.D. programs at North American universities. One of the applicant’s declared areas of concentration must be methodology, statistical analysis, or formal modeling.
