CPIP offers a wide range of resources for faculty affiliates. These resources are intended to assist faculty with the development, writing, and receipt of competitive extramural research funding. CPIP would like to formally extend a set of resources to doctoral students who are currently advised by CPIP-affiliated faculty. The set of student resources could include, but are not limited to:

  1. Shared workspace on the 5th floor of SSPA (shared with up to 5 students)
  2. Statistical consultation on research projects that are jointly pursued with CPIP faculty and intended to result in the production of an extramural grant proposal; or on research projects for which students are pursuing extramural grant support on their own
  3. Consideration for summer research fellowships and for allocation of funds for data purchases for research projects for which students will seek extramural grant support
  4. Support for travel and registration costs to attend the annual Population Association of America (PAA) conference. [note: travel support is contingent on receiving an oral or poster presentation]
  5. Ability to reserve time on one of CPIP’s monthly seminar dates to present, and receive feedback on, student’s research

To receive the CPIP affiliation, doctoral students would have to meet the following qualifications:

  1. Primary advisor must be a CPIP affiliate
  2. In good academic standing, per the Chair or Graduate Director of respective doctoral program
  3. Develop AND submit an NIH F31 Predoctoral Fellowship Application in 2nd or 3rd year of PhD; if the NIH application is not within the student’s purview, submission of an NIJ, NSF, IES fellowship application, or proposal to a foundation, could be considered on a case-by-case basis
  4. Complete Demographic Methods course (SOC226A/PH 209), offered every fall

The decision on CPIP doctoral student affiliation would be made by simple majority vote of the CPIP Executive Committee. Executive Committee members with a conflict of interest would be recused from the vote.
