Undergraduate Inclusivity & Expansion Fellowship

This fellowship provides funding to support promising undergraduates interested in learning the tools and techniques of data science, political science research, and political science methods to help develop a new generation of political science scholars. This highly-competitive fellowship provides a year-long program for each winner that consists of the opportunity to engage in free summer quantitative social science training at the ICPSR Summer Program at the University of Michigan, which has served the social science community for decades, educating thousands of students and advanced scholars from around the world. The fellowship also includes participation in an online affinity community with other students across the United States who share a common interest in political methodology, network with political methodologists around the world, and participate in a research project in consultation with a faculty mentor. The program is particularly designed for students interested in applying to graduate programs in political methodology. 

This fellowship is made possible with the support of the National Science Foundation and individual faculty support.
