The American Statistical Association’s Wray Jackson Smith Scholarship Committee is accepting applications through April 1 for consideration for the 2013 award.
The WJSS Award provides funding of $1,000 to be used in ways that will advance the recipient’s exposure to or experience with the application of statistics to problems relevant to any level of government. Past winners have used their awards to attend the Joint Statistical Meetings or other professional conferences; to take short courses or college classes on topics related to data analysis, measurement, or data quality; and to support aspects of their continued public policy research. Funds may be used for travel, board, tuition or registration fees, or for the purchase of books, software, data sets, or other supporting materials for research projects.
Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent level of education. Membership in the GSS or the ASA is not required. Applicants are asked to submit a proposal for the activity to be funded and to complete an application form and provide two letters of recommendation. Submit materials to: Wray Jackson Smith Scholarship Committee c/o Polly Phipps / Bureau of Labor Statistics / 2 Massachusetts Ave, NE, Ste. 1950 Washington, DC 20212; or electronically to email@example.com
Graduate students are invited to join a conversation with current Brown postdocs volunteering their experiences, tips and suggestions. For details, download the flyer here.
