Scholarship for Education Research

The application deadline for all 2018 ICPSR scholarships is Saturday, March 31, 2018.

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) Council has authorized a scholarship to encourage participation in the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research by students who are conducting empirical research in the field of education.

The Scholarship for Education Research is a waiver of Program Scholar (non-credit) fees to attend one or both of the four-week sessions in the ICPSR Summer Program. There are no requirements about the specific substantive focus of a student's research, but applicants to this scholarship must be interested in acquiring quantitative skills in order to execute empirical (i.e., data-based) research within education or an education-related field.

All applicants must register for at least one four-week workshop, but are not required to pay the registration fee in order to apply for the scholarship. Note that workshop selections may be changed later, but that the ICPSR Scholarship Committee may use your course preference as a criterion in the selection process. The following application materials are required:

  1. A current curriculum vitae

  2. A cover letter explaining how participation in the ICPSR Summer Program will contribute toward the completion of your degree.

  3. Two letters of recommendation from faculty.
