The 2017 EADP-EARA-SRA Summer School

02 Febbraio 2017 Summer School,

In 2017, EADP, EARA and SRA will jointly organize a Summer School focusing on research on adolescence. The Summer School will be held in Utrecht, The Netherlands from August 26th to August 29th (just before the ECDP2017 conference, The site for the school is De Bergse Bossen, located in national park Utrechtse Heuvelrug and close to Utrecht University. The summer school will be directed by Susan Branje. The Senior Scholars slated for this year include (in alphabetical order): Craig Colder, Elisabetta Crocetti, Velma McBride-Murry, Christiana Spiel, Sabine Walper, and Manuel Voelkle as school methodologist. We invite doctoral students in any part of the world to apply. A total of 24 students will be selected on the basis of their academic records, research experience, letters of recommendation, and overall evidence of scientific aptitude and competence. Students who apply should have their doctoral research planned or underway, but not completed. Preference is given to students who are mid-way in their research, so that they can benefit from the critiques given during the school. Students will have to cover their own travel costs, with accommodations and meals paid for by the School. US students (whose travel costs are expected to be substantially higher) can opt for an SRA travel fellowship.
