IES-PIRT Fellowship Application

NYU-IES Predoctoral Interdisciplinary Research Training Program (IES-PIRT) 

2016-2017 Application and Description

Fellowship Description

NYU's Institute of Human Development and Social Change (IHDSC) in association with faculty from six academic units - Applied Psychology, Humanities and Social Sciences in the Professions, Teaching and Learning (Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development); Economics and Sociology (Faculty of Arts and Science); and the Wagner School of Public Service – was awarded a second five-year grant to train an additional 27 incoming and advanced doctoral students from diverse backgrounds to become outstanding researchers in the educational sciences through 14 four-year awards and 13 two-year awards.

The primary focus of the second phase is to provide doctoral students with the knowledge, expertise, and technical skills to pursue rigorous, cutting-edge, relevant research in both academic and non-academic settings and to produce research that supports children’s learning from preschool through post-secondary education.

Doctoral students will participate in a core curriculum consisting of 1) interdisciplinary training; 2) content expertise in the program’s thematic focal areas: a) enhancing outcomes beyond test scores, and b) policy influences on and supports for the scale-up of evidence-based interventions; and 3) quantitative training in causal inference and data science.
