About the Summer Program

Since its inception, the Consortium has offered the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research as a complement to its data services. The Summer Program provides a comprehensive, integrated program of studies in research design, statistics, data analysis, and social science methodology. Its instructional environment stresses integration of methods of quantitative analysis within a broader context of substantive social research. Instruction is grounded in interactive, participatory data-analysis utilizing high-end, networked microcomputers. Because of the range of methodological instruction, the opportunity for intensive study, and the quality of instruction and supporting facilities, the Summer Program has become internationally recognized as a preeminent forum for basic and advanced training in the methodologies and technologies of social science research and instruction.

The Summer Training Program schedule is partitioned into two four-week sessions, with instruction organized in lecture, seminar, and workshop formats. In addition, the curriculum includes special workshops that provide participants with opportunities to examine the impact of various methodologies on specific substantive issues. Research scholars who have made important contributions to the development of social methodology present informal lectures focusing on their most recent research interests. Finally, workshops that address the practical objectives of providing technical support for computing specialists and data librarians are also offered.

Participants in each year's Summer Program generally represent about 25 different departments and disciplines from over 200 colleges, universities, and organizations around the world. While sociology, psychology, and political science continue to be represented by the largest number of participants, the increasing number of individuals from across the social and behavioral sciences illustrates the breadth of interest in and impact of the Program.

The Mission of the Summer Program
•To offer instruction for the primary development and "upgrading" of quantitative skills by college and university faculty and by nonacademic research scholars

•To extend the scope and depth of analytic skills for graduate participants, college and university faculty, and research scientists from the public sector

•To furnish training for those individuals who expect to become practicing social methodologists

•To provide opportunities for social scientists to study those methodologies that have special bearing on specific substantive issues

•To create an environment that facilitates an exchange of ideas related to the development of methodologies on the frontier of social research

Scholarships for attending the ICPSR Summer Program

The ICPSR Summer Program offers several fee-waiver scholarships to support graduate students who want to participate in one or both of the Summer Program's four-week sessions. Unfortunately, there are no scholarships or fee waivers that support participation in the Summer Program's three- to five-day statistical workshops.

The ICPSR Summer Program scholarships are targeted toward specific substantive fields and academic disciplines. Apart from these specialized awards, ICPSR does not offer any generic forms of financial assistance to support individual participation in the Summer Program.

The selection process for each scholarship is highly competitive. Unless stated otherwise in a specific scholarship description, preference is given to relatively advanced Ph.D. students who are focusing on methodology and statistical analysis.

Applications should be responsive to the objectives and requirements of the respective scholarships. Please be sure to read the descriptions very carefully. Unless stated otherwise, the deadline for all Summer Program scholarships is 12:00 noon, Eastern Standard Time, Monday, May 14, 2012.

We wish you good luck and great success in your search for funding to participate in the 2012 ICPSR Summer Program. And, of course, we hope to see you in Ann Arbor this summer!
