Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology

While not a degree-granting unit, CSDE has provided UW graduate students with advanced, interdisciplinary training in population studies for over 60 years. Graduate students can become trainees and enroll in CSDE’s Demographic Methods Graduate Certificate Program, apply for CSDE fellowships, receive mentoring from CSDE Faculty Affiliates, and participate in workshops. Learn how you can get involved below!

Demographic Methods Graduate Certificate

CSDE’s Demographic Methods Graduate Certificate Program provides training beyond that of a graduate degree, priming you for a career in population research.

Funded Fellowships Offered by CSDE

Each year, CSDE awards several distinguished fellowships for predoctoral funding and additional mentoring. Find out if you’re eligible and how to apply below!
