Jerome M. Clubb Scholarship

The scholarship application deadline for 2019 has passed. Please check back in February 2020 for information about how to apply for a scholarship to the 2020 Summer Program.

The Social Science History Association (SSHA) and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) have established an award in honor of Jerome M. Clubb, former executive director of both organizations.

The Clubb 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 Clubb Scholarship is open to students pursuing a degree in Quantitative History or related fields. The Clubb Scholarship can also be awarded to students from other disciplines who are conducting historical research. Regardless of substantive field, one of the applicant's articulated interests must be the acquisition of quantitative skills in order to execute empirical (i.e., data-based) research on a historical topic.

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 completion of your degree.

  3. Two letters of recommendation from faculty.
