Clifford C. Clogg Scholarship

The application deadline for all 2017 ICPSR scholarships is Friday, March 31, 2017.

The methodology sections of the American Political Science Association (APSA) and the American Sociological Association (ASA) worked with the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) to establish a scholarship in honor of the late Clifford C. Clogg, an innovator in quantitative social research methods and Academic Advisor to the ICPSR Summer Program.

The Clogg Scholarship is a waiver of Program Scholar (non-credit) fees to attend one or both of the four-week sessions in the ICPSR Summer Program. The Clogg Scholarship is intended for current and actively-enrolled graduate students in Political Science and Sociology Ph.D. programs. One of the applicant's declared areas of concentration must be methodology, statistical analysis, or formal modeling.

Application materials should be submitted electronically to the Summer Program. Applicants should first register for the ICPSR Summer Program through the Program's online Portal on this website, and select classes in one or both of the four-week sessions. Note that course selections may be modified and changed later, but that the Clogg Scholarship Committee may use an applicant's preferred courses as a criterion in the selection process for the scholarship. After selecting courses in one or both four-week sessions, applicants must email the following supporting materials directly to

  1. A current curriculum vitae

  2. A cover letter from the student, explaining how participation in the ICPSR Summer Program will contribute toward completion of the Ph.D.

  3. Two letters of recommendation from faculty. Your letter writers should directly submit their recommendations to the ICPSR Summer Program at and include your name and the scholarship you're applying for in the subject line or body of the email.
