CSDC Summer Scholarships for L’École interdisciplinaire outils & méthodes 2021


Deadline: TBD



One of the CSDC’s central missions is the support of research method training for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Indeed, in 2021 the CSDC received 10 applications in its March 2021 competition and awarded 10 Methods Grants totalling $ 21,000.

For the Summer of 2021, the CSDC has concluded a new partnership with the new L’École interdisciplinaire outils & méthodes (EIOM). The EIOM is an initiative of Yannick Dufresne, the Chair of Leadership in teaching of digital social sciences (CLESSN)) and the Graduate School of International Studies (ESEI)at the Université Laval.

The EIOM is the largest French-speaking summer school dedicated to empirical research methods. The 1st edition of the School will be held from August 16 to 26, 2021 in a virtual manner and offers three courses with distinct methodologies:

  1. Terrain et études de cas comparatives ;
  2. Modélisation et prédiction ;
  3. Causalité et expérimentation

For additional information on the EIOM consult:

The CSDC offers around ten scholarships of a maximum of $ 500 each. The scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.

All graduate and post-doctoral student members can apply.

All applicants are strongly advised to carefully read and follow the instructions and requirements outlined in the Guidelines.





All CSDC graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are eligible for funding,



The maximum amount is $ 500. The only eligible expenses are the registration fees. (For credited registrations, tuition fees are not eligible.)


Assessment of Applications:

The scholarships are awarded on a first come first served basis.


Notification of Award:

Successful candidates will be informed by email specifying the amount and conditions of the scholarship. A copy of this email will be sent to the candidate’s supervisor.

Unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email. It should be recognized that the CSDC has a limited amount of funds and, although applications may have merit, there may not be sufficient funds to award all such applications.


Knowledge Transfer

Award recipients may be asked to share new insights with the greater CSDC member and student community during one of the CSDC events (e.g., the Montreal Method Workshop Series, the Winter Method School organized by the CSDC Graduate Students Committee).


Application procedure:

  • Preregister or register for the EIOM Summer School
  • Complete the form below, and attach proof of registration and payment of registration fees
  • Ask your supervisor to send a short email of supervisor confirming the relevance of EIOM courses
  • Make sure your WEB page on the CSDC WEB site is up to date (including the photo)


Incomplete submissions:

In order to maintain the principle of fairness to all applicants, policies must be adhered to in the preparation of Methods Grant applications. Non-adherence to the Policies will lead to rejection (without appeal) of the application.



The reimbursement request has to be submitted within four (4) weeks after the methods course has finished.

A reimbursement request consists of:

  • Invoice for registration fee
