Special Student Funding

Make a Difference to Your Students Planning to Attend JSM 2014

ASA has a one-time source of money awarded but not spent for the travel of young researchers to the International Future of Statistics Workshop last November.

Send a 1-page letter of recommendation for one or more of your students or recent graduates who are planning to attend JSM 2014 and who could use some extra cash for travel. We will award 36 recipients up to $500 to attend JSM 2014. The awards will be paid once we receive their travel receipts.

Awardees should be US citizens or permanent residents who are graduate students, undergraduate students or recent graduates. Preference will be given to women and minorities, but this is not a requirement for funding.

Send your letter(s) of recommendation to Lynn Palmer,, Director of Programs, American Statistical Association, by March 15. We will let you and your awardee know their results by April 15.
