Census Bureau Dissertation Fellowship (deadline: 1/21/22)

The U.S. Census Bureau offers opportunities for dissertation research that relates to the planning, collection, processing, analysis, making inferences, and disseminating data and data products. This research draws on deep training, knowledge, and skills to further develop or improve methodology in (1) statistical theory and methodology, (2) survey measurement methodology, or (3) data science methodology applicable to censuses, large scale sample surveys, or other data sources (e.g., administrative data and big data).

This program seeks to award a limited number of contracts each year to Ph.D.- granting accredited institutions of higher education in the United States to fund the dissertation research of doctoral candidates who propose and investigate solutions to methodological problems of primary interest to the Census Bureau.

Applications must be submitted by the Graduate Center, so fellows planning to apply should submit materials to the Provost’s office no later than January 21, 2022. Application materials should be emailed as PDF attachments to Rachel Sponzo rsponzo@gc.cuny.edu using “census fellowship application” in the subject line.
