SSRIC stipends available for ICPSR Summer Program—application deadline March 19, 2021

This year the CSU’s Social Science Research and Instructional Council (SSRIC) is offering stipends for CSU faculty members to register for quantitative methods courses in the 2021 Summer Program presented by the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). Due to the pandemic, all 2021 ICPSR summer courses will be online-only. Also, the formats for ICPSR’s 2021 summer courses will differ in some ways from previous years. Please see the short course and four week session pages, as well as the links at the top of these pages, for more details.

Each stipend will pay the course registration fee for either a short course or a four-week session. Stipend awardees’ registration fees will be paid directly to ICPSR by SSRIC. Stipends cannot be used for expenses other than workshop registration fees.

In allocating stipends, priority will be given to faculty from CSU campuses with active SSRIC subscriptions. 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 2021 Summer Program are welcome to apply for the stipend.

Application deadline

The application deadline is March 19, 2021. We will continue to accept applications after that date if funds remain. SSRIC will notify applicants whether they have been awarded a stipend by March 29, 2021.

How to apply for a stipend

The application form is at It will ask you to provide the following information:

1. Your name and affiliation

2. The title and date of the course you intend to take

3. The location where the course will be held

4. The course registration fee for attendees (please enter the “ICPSR member” fee)

5. A clear statement of how the course will benefit your research and teaching

Please note that the registration fee for four-week courses increases on April 30, and stipends for those courses will cover the cost of registering before that increase. Also please note that returning ICPSR participants receive a 15% discount on registration fees. If you are in this category, please deduct that amount from the registration fee amount that you enter in the application form and indicate that you are a returning scholar at the beginning of your statement about how the course will benefit you.

Other financial support

Entirely separately from the SSRIC stipends that are the subject of this message, ICPSR itself also offers financial support for summer program participants. You can learn more about this support at
