Financial support for the Essex Summer School 2020 (in place of ESS @ Waseda)
We are pleased to announce that financial support will be available for taking a course at the Essex Summer School 2020 (all online) because we cannot hold the ESS @ Waseda this year. We will support a full tuition fee for one course per student, and the recipients will be selected on a competitive basis because of our limited budget.
The deadline for the application is by 5 PM on July 17 (Fri).
While any graduate students in the Graduate School of Political Science or the Graduate School of Economics at Waseda are eligible, priority will be given to doctoral students and Master’s degree students who will continue to the Ph.D. program. 4th-year (or higher) SPSE undergraduate students are also eligible to apply, but the eligibility is limited to those who are scheduled to go to the Graduate School of Political Science or the Graduate School of Economics at Waseda. Note that even if you are in the prioritized group, the support will not be guaranteed depending on the number of applications.
Also, not all ESS courses are eligible for support. You must select a course from the courses listed below. This is a regular ESS course, and you may earn 15 ETCS credits by completing the course conditional on passing required exams. The courses start on Monday, August 10th and end on Friday, August 21st.

We will reimburse you on a later date, but please note that it may take a few months before you get reimbursed.
