FFCWS Summer Data Workshop 2023

Nov. 8, 2022

The Columbia Population Research Center 's FFCWS Summer Data Workshop will be held June 14 - June 16, 2023 at Columbia University in New York City.

The workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the data available in the FFCWS, a national study following a birth cohort of (mostly) unmarried parents and their children, providing information about the capabilities, circumstances, and relationships of unwed parents, the wellbeing of their children, and the role of public policy in family and child wellbeing.

Substantive areas covered include, but are not limited to: family structure, health, education, economic resources and activity, system involvement (e.g., criminal legal system, foster care, child support), adolescent relationships, and many others.

The workshop targets early-career scholars from social and health science disciplines. We particularly encourage applications from junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students using the FFCWS data in their doctoral dissertations. Underrepresented scholars are strongly encouraged to apply. About 25 applicants will be selected. Travel support will be available for accepted out-of-town candidates.

Additional information regarding the 2023 workshop may be found on the Columbia University's FFCWS data workshop website. Please note that the application period has ended.

The Future of Families Summer Data Workshop is made possible by a grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (2R25HD074544-06).
