Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop

The Fragile Families Summer Data Training Workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the data available in the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, 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. The workshop is targeted toward early-career scholars from social science disciplines. We particularly encourage applications from junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and advanced doctoral students using the Fragile Families data in their doctoral dissertations. Underrepresented scholars are strongly encouraged to apply.
