CSDC graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are eligible for up to two Methods Training grants during their entire program. A minimum of four grants of up to $3,000 will be awarded per academic year. Preference will be given to attend programs with intensive method training (e.g. ICPSR summer workshop at the University of Michigan). Grants may also be used for substantive training if the student can demonstrate that a comparable course is not available within Montreal or Quebec.
These grants will be awarded on a competitive basis and funding may be apportioned depending on the number of applicants for each competition. The full amount of $3,000 is only available for programs that last more than three weeks. Shorter programs will receive up to $1,500 for the first week, and $500 for each additional week for a maximum of $2,500 for programs up to three weeks. Note that within each competition, priority will be given to first time applicants, methods programs and graduate students over postdocs.
Following the review of the application by the steering committee, the applicant will receive an email notification with details of the decision regarding the Training grant allocation.
