MRDRC offers funding for summer workshops
Three funding awards for either the Health and Retirement Survey (HRS) Summer Workshop or the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) Data User Workshop and one award for an Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) session are available. Because most sessions are remote this year (ICPSR is hybrid; see below for details), the funding covers tuition expenses for the programs. All are invited to apply for the funding; members of under-represented communities are encouraged to apply. Visit our Summer Funding page for details.
Deadline for MRDRC’s funding applications is March 31, 2022.
