Graduate Student Research Presentation and Training Grant

View past grant program awards:

The Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences (CSSS) offers a limited number of grants for graduate and undergraduate students and postdoctoral researchers working with CSSS faculty affiliates, and junior CSSS faculty affiliates to assist in presenting research and attending workshops or courses.

The grants will be awarded on a competitive basis by the CSSS Executive Committee for the purpose of presenting papers and attending workshops or courses related to the long-term goals of CSSS, notably research in social statistics and quantitative methods in the social sciences, and collaborative research between social scientists and statisticians.

Preference will be given to proposals for which other sources of support are not available. Priority will be given to graduate students, post doctoral researchers and, on occasion, undergraduate students. CSSS Seed Grant recipients may also apply. The awardee should acknowledge the support of CSSS in the course of any presentations. A report from the participant is required before reimbursement. The report should include a brief account of the conference or workshop, and a copy of any slides presented.

Please check our website during the academic year for the application deadlines. CSSS typically offers two rounds of awards (fall and spring) during the academic year.
