PRC Student Trainee Program
Students with interests in population research (broadly defined) can benefit from affiliation with the PRC through the opportunity to become involved in the wide variety of funded research projects based there. The PRC is also able to provide trainees with access to specialized software and computer infrastructure, and when possible, fellowship support, space, and travel funds to attend professional meetings. Perhaps most importantly, the traineeship provides the opportunity to become part of a dynamic scholarly community consisting of students, faculty, and the Center's professional staff.
The training program is based on a mentor in which students gain practical research experience under the supervision of a PRC faculty research associate. Apprenticeship assignments are made in light of preferences and training needs of the student and the specific needs of the various funded research projects.
