Summer Fellowships: Pursuing Self-Directed, Issues-Oriented Research
To promote careers in social policy research, particularly for scholars who might otherwise be drawn to government or academe, Mathematica launched its summer fellowship program in 1992. The program supports independent, self-directed research on economic or social problems that affect minority groups and individuals with disabilities.
Who: Students enrolled in a master's or Ph.D. program in public policy or a social science. Qualified minority students and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
Why: To pursue independent research on a policy issue of relevance to the economic and social problems of minority groups and individuals with disabilities. To expose students to social policy research in a nonacademic environment.
What: Up to five summer fellowships with a stipend of $10,000 for full participation plus $500 toward project-related expenses.
When: June 1 to August 31 (approximately)
Where: Princeton, NJ, Ann Arbor, MI, Cambridge, MA, Chicago IL, Oakland, CA, and Washington, DC
