Edward C. Bryant Scholarship
for an Outstanding Graduate Student in Survey Statistics
Each year, an outstanding graduate student in survey statistics is awarded the Edward C. Bryant Scholarship to help support the student's graduate education.
Westat established the Edward C. Bryant Scholarship Trust Fund in 1995 to honor its cofounder and chair emeritus.
