NSF REU Site: Quantitative Social Science Research at the University of Michigan
The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) at the University of Michigan will host a new Research for Undergraduates (REU) site offering a ten-week summer experience for eight eligible undergraduate students entering their junior or senior years. This program builds on and expands both a long-standing summer training program in quantitative research in the social sciences, hosted by ICPSR since 1963, and a highly effective undergraduate internship program that began in 2005. The REU will significantly expand the existing internship program?s scope through the inclusion of a research project that pulls together all of the skills the students learn into one tangible product, completed under the guidance of a designated research mentor, and expand its breadth by increasing the number of students.

Funding Period: 10/01/2011 to 09/30/2015
