CES Dissertation Mentorship Program

The Census Bureau’s Center for Economic Studies (CES) wants to assist doctoral candidates who are actively engaged in dissertation research in economics or a related field using Census Bureau microdata at a Research Data Center.

Program participants receive two principal benefits:

  • One or more CES staff economists are assigned as mentors and advise the participant on the use of Census Bureau microdata.
  • A visit to CES where they meet with staff economists and present research in progress. Trip expenses (airfare, hotel, and meals) will be paid for by CES.
