WomanStats Project Trainee Class

The WomanStats Project is now taking applications for our 2015 Fall Trainee Class and 2016 Winter Trainee Class, a series of sessions that train students as WomanStats coders.  Both men and women with an interest in data gathering and/or data analysis are encouraged to apply.  To apply, fill out the application.  Please apply by Saturday, 1 August  to start September 2015 and by Tuesday, 1 December to start January 2016.

We hope coders will have a 3.4 GPA or higher and have at least 1.5 years or more of schooling left so there is time to put their training to good use. Students remaining at BYU for graduate school or moving to TAMU for graduate school are also welcome to apply. After reviewing applications, we will choose a subset of applicants to train for coder positions.

The WomanStats Project is the most comprehensive compilation of information on the status of women in the world. The project facilitates understanding the linkage between the situation of women and the security of nation-states. We comb a variety of sources and conduct expert interviews to find qualitative and quantitative information on over 360 indicators of women’s status in 175 countries. Read More…
