Last day to apply: Stone Center inequality workshop | in NYC, June 3-7, 2024

This workshop is targeted to Ph.D. students and early-career scholars who work in a range of social science disciplines — including anthropology, economics, sociology, political science, psychology, public policy, social work, and related fields — and have concerns about and an interest in better understanding socio-economic inequalities. We also welcome applicants with backgrounds in journalism, nonprofit organizations, and other fields outside of academia. Applicants should be comfortable with presentations and readings that rely on quantitative research and analytic methods. About 50 to 60 applicants will be selected.

Instruction will begin daily at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m., and there will be an hour-long break for lunch. Each day will end with 30 minutes for research consultations.
