Harold Gulliksen Psychometric Research Fellowship
The Harold Gulliksen Psychometric Research fellowship provides funding for promising graduate students in psychometrics, or a related field, who are conducting innovative, applied research. Selected fellows will carry out their proposed research under the mentorship of their academic advisor and in consultation with their ETS mentors over the course of the funding. The fellowship begins with the selected fellows working on their research as part of the Summer RMS Internship Program, where they will be provided with guidance from ETS’s leading researchers. During the subsequent academic year, fellows study at their universities and carry out research under the supervision of an academic mentor and in consultation with their ETS mentor.
Each fellow’s university receives the following:
- $20,000 to pay a stipend to the fellow
- $8,000 to defray the fellow’s tuition, fees and work-study program commitments
- A small grant to facilitate work on the fellow’s research project
Selected fellow must participate in the Summer RMS Internship Program in Research for Graduate Students.
At the time of application, candidates must be enrolled in a doctoral program, have completed all the coursework toward the doctorate, and be at the dissertation stage of their program. Dissertation topics in the areas of psychometrics, statistics, educational measurement or quantitative methods will be given priority. At the time of application, candidates will be asked to provide a statement describing any additional financial assistance such as assistantship or grant commitment that he/she will have during the fellowship period.
