Application Deadline


  • Applicants must hold a minimum of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university.
  • We encourage applications from both social science students and students with strong quantitative backgrounds with interests in applications to social science. We expect students to have strong interest and some training in quantitative methods of analysis, but their programming background need not be intensive.

Funding & Support

  • Ph.D. Students will be fully funded and receive stipends for at least five years, contingent on making good progress in the program. In the first year, each student will receive a one-year (12 months), university-funded fellowship.
