Application form for the travel scholarship 2018

Download the application form

Travel scholarships are awarded every year to 5-10 research students or postdoctorals to participate in ICPSR’s Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. The scholarships are intended to cover the course fee and travelling and accommodation costs for a four or eight week period. Deadline for application is Friday March 23 2018.
 
The course fee for program scholars is USD 2 500 for one session (four weeks) and USD 3 700 for both sessions (eight weeks). This fee is paid directly to the summer school on behalf of the scholarship holders. Other participants, who arrange financing through other means, must pay this course fee at registration. Please note that the course fee is increased if registering after the 30th April.
 
On the application form, applicants need to stipulate which courses and workshops they want to participate in. For information on the program and courses available please see ICPSR’s webpage.
 
Applications from research students need to include a letter of recommendation from the student’s supervisor. This letter should include that the student’s intentions are known and that the participation in the summer school is approved.  
 
Applications need to include a one A4 page letter in English. This letter needs to address the applicant’s qualifications and how they can be used constructively to enable a successful participation in the summer school. The purpose of this letter is to give an overview of the applicant’s qualifications and abilities. Applications from research students need to also illustrate his/hers dissertation plan (if determined) and describe to which extent it includes quantitative approaches. Applicants need to state if they have participated in the summer school earlier.
 
In association with registration in Ann Arbor, the recipients of the scholarships will receive guidance in respect to the choice of courses they have made in their application. It is therefore important to note which courses the scholarship holders have studied, especially courses in quantitative methods. This will enable them to choose suitable courses at the correct level.
