The deadline for the Robert Ferber Dissertation Award and the Seymour Sudman Dissertation Award has been extended to Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
We would appreciate it if you would kindly forward this e-mail to those who might be eligible to apply for these awards.
Both of these awards are for excellence in survey research as part of a doctoral dissertation. Eligible dissertations will involve either methodological research related to surveys (including the broader area of cognition that can be applied to survey research) or will be based on primary survey data collection on any topic.
An award of up to $2,000 will be given to the winner of each of these two awards. All doctoral candidates whose dissertations meet the above criteria are eligible provided, (1) they are currently enrolled on, or recently graduated from, the UIUC campus, and (2) they successfully defended their dissertation proposal between May 28, 2016, and May 28, 2017. This refers to defense of the proposal, not the final dissertation.
