Graduate Student Juwan Bennett Receives ICPSR Diversity Scholarship
Please join us congratulating Juwan Bennett for being selected to receive a Diversity Scholarship for the 2019 ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research at the University of Michigan. There were only 30 scholarships and almost 200 applicants.
The ICPSR Summer Program established the Diversity Scholarships in 2018 with support from the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research and the University of Michigan Office of the Provost to promote quantitative training among incoming graduate students from underrepresented groups. Thanks to a generous grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Diversity Scholarship was expanded in 2019 to offer awards to continuing graduate students from underrepresented groups. The Diversity Scholarship Awards enable promising graduate students to acquire additional preparation in quantitative analysis with the objective of improving their academic performance and optimizing their professional advancement.
