Admission to the MPC Training Program in Population Studies

To be eligible for a Traineeship, students must be admitted to a PhD program of an academic unit affiliated with the MPC through that unit's regular graduate admissions process.

  • Students may begin the Training Program in Population Studies as an incoming PhD student or after completing one year in their current PhD program
  • We work with trainees to find suitable funding for three years, the period of their training, though funding is not guaranteed
  • At the end of each academic year, the Graduate Faculty in Population Studies will evaluate each trainee's progress and make decisions about continuation of traineeships

When you are ready to apply, please fill out this googleform application by May 24, 2024. Note that you will be asked to upload your CV and unofficial transcript.  We will review applications in May for a Fall September 2024 start date.
