Graduate Student Travel Grants
Posted: 10/10/2016 (Funding)
The Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences (CSSS) will award a limited number of grants for graduate students working with CSSS affiliated faculty to assist in presenting research and attending workshops or courses. Under extraordinary circumstances, undergraduate students and postdoctoral researchers may also be supported with an award. Travel between January 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017 is eligible for support. Travel outside this period will be considered with justification.
The purpose of the awards is to support travel that will advance the long-term goals of CSSS: promoting research in social statistics and quantitative methods in the social sciences, and collaborative research between social scientists and statisticians. Applications will be evaluated by the CSSS Executive Committee; priority will be given to proposals that demonstrate sophisticated use of statistical methodology and promise to have significant substantive impact. Among high priority proposals, preference will be given to students for whom other sources of support are not available, and who have not received CSSS funding in the past. Successful applicants should acknowledge the support of CSSS in the course of any presentations, and may be asked to participate in CSSS poster or presentation sessions subsequent to their travel. Questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
