Extended Deadline: Applications are now due Sunday, February 19, 2017. All materials must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research.
The Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research (SICAR) is a multi-day seminar in which Ph.D. students receive training in conducting archival research from world-class faculty, researchers, archivists, and publishers. Although archival research is an integral part of many academic disciplines, it is virtually never taught at the graduate level. SICAR fills this critical gap in graduate education.
The Wilson Center and George Washington University now welcome applications for the 2017 Summer Institute from Ph.D. students from the US and abroad working on international relations and modern history in a variety of disciplines, including history, government and politics, sociology, anthropology, and public policy, as well as area and regional studies. Preference will be given to students who have defended their dissertation proposal and who are about to embark on archival research.
The 2017 workshop will be held during the week of May 29-June 2 (exact schedule TBA).
The deadline for applications is Sunday, February 19, 2017. All application materials must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST.
Applications should include the following:
- SICAR Application Cover Sheet
- Curriculum Vitae
- Proposal (1-2 pg., 12 pt. font, double spaced, 1” margins), outlining how your dissertation research would benefit from participation in SICAR.
- One Letter of Recommendation (Should be submitted by recommender directly to firstname.lastname@example.org)
All application materials should be submitted via e-mail to email@example.com.
