In 2019, 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 Greece from August 26 to 29 (just before the ECDP2019 conference), with arrival on August 25. The site for the school will be in Kalamata, a nice town of the Peloponnese peninsula. The summer school will be directed by Susan Branje, Lisa Kiang, and Katariina Salmela-Aro. The Senior Scholars participating this year include (in alphabetical order): Rob Crosnoe, Linda Juang, Tina Malti, Katariina Salmela-Aro, and Michiel Westenberg, and Ellen Hamaker 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 from August 25 to 29 and meals from August 26 to 29 paid for by the School. US students (whose travel costs are expected to be substantially higher) can opt for an SRA travel fellowship.
