Training in Demography and Population Studies

The Population Studies Center (PSC) is a research and training center within the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan. The Center administers a large training program for both predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars in which PSC training faculty teach a broad range of specialized demographic courses. Our roster of current graduate student research interests offers a sense of the breadth of social science topics studied.

An assortment of government, foundation, and University funds are available to support trainees as well as the Hermalin and Freedman Funds, and Weinberg Fellowship which support the continuing research and training of PSC graduates, and PSC's Research Support Fund. More information on support can be found at the UM Office of Financial Aid.
