ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research

The Social Sciences Research and Instructional Council (SSRIC) is offering stipends for CSU faculty and advanced graduate students to attend courses in the 2018 Summer Program presented by the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). The stipend will pay the course fee for either a four-week session in Ann Arbor, Michigan, or a short (three-to-five-day) Statistical Workshop at any location. For information about the ICPSR Summer Program, including the course descriptions, schedule, and locations, please visit the ICPSR website at http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/sumprog/

In allocating stipends, priority will be given to faculty from CSU campuses with currently active subscriptions to the SSRIC. Successful applicants will demonstrate how their attendance at the Summer Program will enhance both the teaching and research missions of the CSU. Scholars who have already registered for the 2018 Summer Program are welcome to apply for the stipend.
