SPES Funds Available for College and University Speakers

    Funds are available through the SPES Marquardt Memorial Speakers Program for applied statisticians to visit colleges and universities to give a seminar and meet with students and professors. SPES reimburses the host institution for up to $1,000 (previously $500) to cover the expenses of the speaker’s visit. The speaker provides information to students about what an applied statistician does; how applied statisticians solve problems in science, engineering, technology, and business; and the nontechnical skills required to be a successful applied statistician.

    The Marquardt Industrial Speakers Program was established by SPES in the early 1990s to encourage careers in applied statistics. If you are part of an institution interested in having a speaker or a SPES member interested in being on the speakers list (or working directly with a local institution to set up a visit), contact Greg Piepel at greg.piepel@pnnl.gov or (509)-375-6911.
