On-line Application Form Instructions

By completing the on-line application form,
you can apply for:

  • admission to the Program
  • consideration for a bursary


Everyone with sufficient background and interest is eligible to participate in the Program. Normally, it is necessary to select among applicants: preference will be given to Canadian university researchers, researchers and policy analysts from public and not-for-profit research organizations, graduate and undergraduate students, and data librarians, who are working or expect to work with data, such as those generated by Statistics Canada's complex longitudinal surveys. Non-Canadian participants are welcome to apply, however.

Please pay particular attention the section of the application labelled: Why I Want to Participate in SPIDA.
