How to participate


Open Pool

There are three separate open pool competitions to participate in IQMR 2022: the general open pool; applications from researchers at African scholarly institutions; and applications from scholars based in the Arab MENA region. You can find links to the three application forms in the table below. 

Scholars admitted through the general track will have their participation at IQMR covered, as well as meals, and shared-accommodation for the duration of the program. General track attendees will be responsible for their own transportation costs to and from Syracuse University. Scholars admitted through the African and MENA tracks will have participation at IQMR covered, meals, and shared-accommodation for the duration of the program, as well as roundtrip economy-class airfare.


Application through the open pool is distinct from nomination by a CQRM member organization. Member departments and schools in the 2021-2022 academic year will have spaces reserved at the institute. Members will choose their nominees using their own selection procedures and should send names and contact information to Colin Elman at Students, fellows and junior faculty who are not sure if they will be selected, or who attend non-member organizations, should apply directly to CQRM through one of the open pool tracks.

The Ethnography module at #IQMR2021 has me 🤯 over and over again. I feel like even the questions I didn't know I wanted to ask have been answered, and the description/reflexivity/analysis chart is going straight in my toolbelt. Thank You!" via Twitter.

Hear From Our Participants

Learn to create and critique methodologically sophisticated qualitative research designs, including case studies, tests of necessity or sufficiency, and narrative or interpretive work. Explore the techniques, uses, strengths, and limitations of these methods, while emphasizing their relationships with alternative approaches. And receive constructive feedback on your own qualitative research designs. 

Watch our YouTube playlist for video introductions to each of the conference sessions.

Please note that while we are hopeful that participants in IQMR 2022 will be able to gather in Syracuse next summer, we realize that this will ultimately be dictated by health circumstances. If we are unable to hold an in-person institute, IQMR 2022 will take place online. We will offer details regarding specific arrangements early next year once we have further information on the progression of the COVID pandemic, and faculty and student needs.
