Please submit the application form (link in upper menu) and the following materials to apply to the Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop. 


The application deadline, for all components of the application, has been extended to Friday, March 16, 2018 (11:59PM EST).


We recommend that you

1) discuss the deadline with your references prior to submitting, so they prepare their letters and are ready to upload once they receive the link, and

2) submit your online application in advance of the deadline so that your references have time to upload the letters prior to the new extended March 16, 2018  (11:59PM EST) deadline.

1) Statement of Purpose

  • Your statement of purpose should be no longer than two pages (not including references) and should indicate your research interests and how your attendance at the workshop will further your research goals. 

  • Preference will be given to applicants with specific plans to use the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing data in upcoming research, such as a doctoral dissertation or paper.

  • Please be sure to include your name on the Statement of Purpose.

  • PDF file required.

2) Updated CV or resumé.

  • PDF file required.

3) Two letters of reference

  • When filling out the online application form, you will be asked to enter the names and contact information of the people who have agreed to provide you with letters of reference.

  • Once your online application form is successfully submitted, your references will automatically be sent emails with the information they need to upload the letters via this site.

  • Letters of reference must be printed on institutional letterhead, bear the signature of the author, and be uploaded as PDF files.

  • Letters of reference must be submitted by the new extended deadline March 16, 2018. Note that this means you should submit your online application prior to the deadline so your references have time to receive the link and upload the letter in time for the deadline.
