Call for Applications: Fragile Families Summer Data Training Workshop

Posted: 1/30/2018 (Conference)

The Columbia Population Research Center is accepting applications for the Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop, which will be held July 11-13, 2018, at Columbia University in New York City.

The workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the data available in the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, a national study following a birth cohort of (mostly) unmarried parents and their children, providing information about the capabilities, circumstances, and relationships of unwed parents, the wellbeing of their children, and the role of public policy in family and child well-being. The 2018 workshop will include special sections on the neighborhood data in the Fragile Families Study.

The workshop is targeted toward early-career scholars from social science disciplines. We particularly encourage applications from junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students using the Fragile Families data in their dissertation. Underrepresented scholars are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must possess basic quantitative data analysis skills. About 25-30 applicants will be selected. Financial support will be available for out-of-town participants.

The online application is available at the link below.

The deadline for application submission is Thursday, March 1st, 2018 at 11:59pm (EST).
