2018 Call for Applications: IRP Graduate Research Fellows Program – Due 8/25/2018

Dear IRP Affiliates and Graduate Students:

The IRP Graduate Research Fellows (GRF) Program is conducted for Ph.D. students in the social sciences at UW–Madison who have an interest in poverty research and expect to complete a related dissertation.

The GRF program and meetings comprise:

  • substantive policy and research discussions that are connected with the IRP seminar themes (e.g., welfare reform, economic and social inequality, etc.) and may at times include a guest speaker;
  • methodological training and discussions, which are also frequently linked with seminar presentations;
  • professional training sessions that focus on preparing students for responsibilities associated with their research careers; and
  • support of students’ dissemination of research.

The deadline for applying to be an IRP Graduate Research Fellow for the 2018–2019 academic year is August 25th.  Please pass this email along to other students who might be interested in applying to the program.

When applying, you will need to deposit as one file your CV, a brief description of your graduate student status, and your research plans through the application link by August 25th. We plan to notify all applicants by September 1st.

Please contact Dave Chancellor if you have any questions or if you are having trouble uploading your application.
