Scholarship for Developmental, Child, and Family Psychology
The application deadline for all 2017 ICPSR scholarships is Friday, March 31, 2017.
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 graduate students who are conducting empirical research in the fields of developmental, child, or family psychology.
This scholarship is intended for advanced graduate students who are currently enrolled and active in Ph.D. programs. 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 an empirical (i.e., data-based) dissertation within developmental, child, or family psychology.
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org:
A current curriculum vitae
A cover letter from the student, explaining how participation in the ICPSR Summer Program will contribute toward completion of the Ph.D.
Two letters of recommendation from faculty. Your letter writers should directly submit their recommendations to the ICPSR Summer Program at email@example.com and include your name and the scholarship you're applying for in the subject line or body of the email.
