  • Learn how to translate conceptual or verbal theories into probabilistic models.
  • Acquire basic or advanced proficiency in quantitative analytics.
  • Receive follow-up training through collaborative research and a workshop at their home institution.


  • NSF-funded financial support for travel, room, and board for the duration of the training program, including international travel.
  • Additional funding for trainees and collaborators to present their resulting research at a conference of their choice.
