Fellowship Support

Through the generosity of the Survey Research Center and individual donors to endowed funds a fellowships available to support the costs to attend the Summer Institute. These fellowships honor Leslie Kish, faculty who made significant contributions to the educational program of the Summer Institute. This fellowship is designed to support participants with particular backgrounds to study survey sampling (the Kish fellowship). This funding will be available in 2024 with the return of the Sampling Program for Survey Statisticians.

The Institute for Social Research (ISR)-Rackham Summer Training Award will be able to provide support for students in Division III to take summer courses offered by the Summer Institute in Survey Research Techniques. The funds are specifically for current graduate students for whom such courses would significantly contribute to their graduate education. This offer may be used to cover the fees associated with these courses when taken as non-credit courses, not for tuition for courses taken for credit.

As part of the 2024 Summer Institute in Survey Research, we will offer a two week program focused on advancing the University’s Diversity, Equity and, Inclusion goals. Most specifically, we will focus on recruitment of upper-level undergraduates from The University of Michigan and around the country who are considering graduate school in quantitative social science fields.
