SSRC/COMPAS International Student Workshops on Migration and Development

Spring & Autumn 2014

The SSRC’s Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (DPDF) Student Fellowship Competition helps graduate students in the humanities and social sciences formulate effective research proposals through exploratory research and exchanges with other scholars within interdisciplinary areas of study.

Each year, the DPDF program selects five or more fields of study for dissertation research proposal training. This year the Development and Migration Field is being co-sponsored by COMPAS.

Workshop dates:
Spring- June 10-15, 2014 in Oxford, England
Fall- September 17-21, 2014 in Arlington, Virginia

The spring workshop helps students focus their research questions and prepare them for summer exploratory research that will inform the design of dissertation proposals. The fall workshop helps students apply their summer research experiences to writing dissertation research proposals for their departments or funding agencies.

Travel, accommodation and meals for both workshops are covered for successful applicants. And students may apply for up to $5,000 to cover summer research costs.

Ronald Skeldon, Professorial Fellow, University of Sussex, Geography [ bio ], Josh DeWind, Program Director, Social Science Research Council [ bio ] have been assigned by COMPAS to direct this field.
