*New* Apply for CSDE’s Summer Grant Writing Program! (due 04/30/2021)

CSDE is inviting applications for its 4th annual Summer Grant Writing Program – a chance for you to learn more about NIH grant-writing and to workshop your proposal with other participants and with experienced senior faculty. Writing a grant in isolation can be mystifying—instead, we aim to create a group experience that is still hard work, but which will be supportive, fun, productive, and ultimately rewarding. All CSDE affiliates (local or regional) are eligible to apply. UW post-docs are eligible to apply only if they plan a training grant centered at UW. Applications from collaborative teams, anticipating a multiple PI arrangement, are also encouraged. Applications are due Friday, April 30 at 6 pm PDT. For more information and to apply, visit this link. Please email CSDE Development Core Director Steve Goodreau (goodreau@uw.edu) with any questions! (read more)

Call for Applications for Summer ’21 PHI-CSDE Applied Research Fellowships (due 04/22/2021)

With support from the Population Health Initiative, CSDE is hosting a third summer applied research program for a team of undergraduate and graduate fellows to address critical demographic analyses of race, age, and households for King County and Public Health Seattle King County.  This summer’s program will build upon last summer’s development of tract level forecasts and add new data and new analyses of historic and contemporary demographic trends across neighborhoods, cities, and places in King County. With new data, the team will see how different kinds of 'shocks' to the county differentially influence population distributions. These analyses will provide valuable tools for local policymakers and stakeholders to better anticipate the needs of their citizens. To learn more about this opportunity, read here. CSDE affiliates please share this call widely with the undergraduate and graduate students who might be interested. (read more)
