Scholarship opportunity for Master of Applied Politics (MAP) candidates

The Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy (LISPOP) is pleased to announce a $2,500 fellowship for a MAP student interested in completing a major research project (MRP) that draws upon LISPOP’s Ipsos Public Affairs Datasets or the completion of a public opinion project.

The public opinion project, one of our MRP options that our students can take, offers you the opportunity to build a long list of “applied skills.”

TASKS DURING THE PROJECT

Students undertaking this option will have:

  • Engaged with a “client.”
  • Design a survey instrument via consultation with the client, seeking out relevant literature/survey questions etc.
  • Develop a survey instrument using Limesurvey.
  • Deploy a survey to a sample (to date, students only) including monitoring responses/data recording.
  • Clean an original dataset.
  • Analyze the data.
  • Report the findings in a final document written for the intended audience.
  • Present the final results to the client as well as to a separate MRP defence committee.

APPLY FOR THE PUBLIC OPINION PROJECT

In order to apply, submit a one-page letter outlining your research interest to Jason Roy at jroy@wlu.ca
