EADP-EARA-SRA Summer School 2018

In 2018, EADP, EARA and SRA will again jointly organize a Summer School focusing on research on adolescence. The Summer School is a training ground for young scholars interested in adolescent development. The Summer Schools bring together established researchers, recognized for their expertise and teaching abilities with doctoral students from around the globe, for several intensive days of research training. The training includes exposure to innovative and creative research, as well as workshops focusing on professional skills. The summer schools have given students enthusiasm to search for scientific guidance outside of the borders of their countries and the walls of their universities.

The Summer School will be held in Belgium from September 9 to 12 (just before the EARA2018 conference). The site for the school is Drongen Abbey, close to the beautiful city of Ghent. The summer school will be directed by Susan Branje and Katariina Salmela-Aro. The Senior Scholars participating this year include (in alphabetical order): Andrew Fuligni, Frosso Motti-Stefanidi, Eva Pomerantz, John Schulenberg, Sabine Walper, and Loes Keijsers as school methodologist.

We invite doctoral students in any part of the world to apply. A total of 24 students (8 per association) will be selected on the basis of their academic records, research experience, letters of recommendation, and overall evidence of scientific aptitude and competence. Students who apply should have their doctoral research planned or underway, but not completed, so that they can benefit from the critiques given during the school. Students will have to cover their own travel costs, with accommodations and meals paid for by the School. US students (whose travel costs are expected to be substantially higher) may apply for an SRA travel fellowship.
