Call for Applications for Federica Web Learning—IAPSS Registration Fee Waivers for Participation at the IPSA Online Summer School 2021 on ‘Concept Analysis in the Web Environment’

Federica Web Learning, in cooperation with the International Political Science Association (IPSA), is organizing the third edition of the IPSA Summer School, this time online due to the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, with personalized online sessions held in November and December 2021. Thanks to the grant provided to IAPSS by Federica Web Learning, the International Association for Political Science Students (IAPSS) is launching a Call for Applications for a limited number of registration fee waivers for participation at the IPSA Summer School 2021.

This summer school is an excellent opportunity to receive an in-depth qualitative training in concept building, using the unique approach known as ‘Hyperpolitics’. In addition, it unfolds in an innovative format, consisting of, first, the undertaking of a MOOC (massive online open course) on Political Concepts, and followed-by the personalized online sessions on November 5-6 and December 3-4, 2021, focusing on the participants’ own research projects. The authors of the three best papers written in the framework of the Summer School will then receive scholarships for the 2022 (residential) edition of the Summer School on the island of Capri.

In cooperation with Federica Web Learning, IAPSS aims to provide a limited number of registration fee waivers for the certificate track of the IPSAMOOC on Political Concepts to promising junior researchers who demonstrate particular interest in concept-building, motivation and commitment to this summer school, and coherent research ideas they can work with in its course.

To this end, the applicants are required to provide a curriculum vitae, focusing on the academic experience of the applicant and a brief statement (maximum 200 words) of their interest to join the programme. 

All documents are to be sent by 8 September 2021 via e-mail as PDF files to mooc@iapss.org.

Notes:

  • An individual IAPSS membership is required from all successful applicants, as well as an honest declaration of the seriousness of their commitment to the summer school and of their enrollment to the IPSA MOOC via the edX platform.
  • Recipients of the Federica—IAPSS registration fee waivers are expected to agree with being featured in promotional material of IAPSS and/or Federica Web Learning.
  • The exact number of registration fee waivers will depend on the overall number and quality of applications.
  • The receipt for the certificate track for the IPSAMOOC on Political Concepts will need to be provided upon acceptance and the expense is reimbursed only after the summer school and upon the conditions of active participation at the online sessions (presence at all sessions unless absence for a well-justified reason) and provision of all receipts required.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via mooc@iapss.org in case of further questions or inquiries.

We look forward to your applications!
