Spring 2014 LDC Data Scholarship Program - deadline approaching!

The deadline for the Spring 2014 LDC Data Scholarship Program is right around the corner!   Student applications are being accepted now through January 15, 2014, 11:59PM EST.  The LDC Data Scholarship program provides university students with access to LDC data at no cost.  This program is open to students pursuing both undergraduate and graduate studies in an accredited college or university. LDC Data Scholarships are not restricted to any particular field of study; however, students must demonstrate a well-developed research agenda and a bona fide inability to pay.

Students will need to complete an application which consists of a data use proposal and letter of support from their adviser.  For further information on application materials and program rules, please visit the LDC Data Scholarship page.

Students can email their applications to the LDC Data Scholarships program. Decisions will be sent by email from the same address.
