ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research
The ICPSR Summer Program offers over 100 scholarships to students from many different fields of social science research. These scholarships enable students to take our courses in statistics, data analysis, and quantitative methods.
These scholarships provide fee waivers to attend our four-week sessions. The first session begins June 21 and ends July 16, and the second begins on July 19 and ends August 13. Courses will be fully online again this summer, allowing participants to learn from anywhere in the world. Lectures are recorded; there is no need to stay up until all hours of the night (unless you really want to).
Courses include introductory and advanced regression analysis, time series analysis, Bayesian analysis, machine learning, rational choice theory, SEM, MLE, game theory, longitudinal analysis, multilevel modeling, social choice theory, race/ethnicity and quantitative methodology, data visualization, data science and text analysis, and more.
