1 November 2014 No Comment

Students in statistics programs across the country can benefit greatly from participating in statistical conferences and other professional activities. To aid these students in their involvement, the ASA’s Quality and Productivity Section (Q&P) initiated a student scholarship program to attend the Joint Statistical Meetings. This year, six $400 scholarships were awarded to the following students to attend JSM in Boston, Massachusetts:

  • Barbara Wendelberger, University of Wisconsin
  • Caleb King, Virginia Tech
  • Shuyu Chu, Virginia Tech
  • Trenton Nash Brown, University of South Dakota
  • Weijie Shen, Penn State
  • Yiming Peng, Virginia Tech

Recipients were recognized at the joint Q&P/SPES mixer at JSM.

Looking forward to 2015, Q&P will offer up to three travel awards of $400 each for students enrolled in a graduate program with a concentration in applied statistics and/or quality management to attend JSM in Seattle, Washington, from August 8–13. Student applicants must show a demonstrated interest in quality applications, as evidenced by course work, research topic, or work experience. Applicants either presenting a paper or participating in a poster session will receive extra consideration.

Applications will be accepted February 1 to March 31, 2015.
