    Nonclinical Biostatistics Scholarship

    The Nonclinical Biostatistics Working Group of the Biopharmaceutical Section of ASA ispleased to announce a scholarship program, open to students in US graduate programs. Envisioned disciplines include (bio)statistics, data science, engineering, or related fields. We invite a student and faculty member, and optionally an industry co-mentor, to submit a research proposal addressing a topic in nonclinical biostatistics. (For a description of nonclinical biostatistics, please explore the document at http://stat.rutgers.edu/home/kolassa/ncbannounce.pdf .) The proposal should lead to a suitable publishable manuscript. The scholarship provides up to $15,000 in total, with at least $10,000 going directly to the student, with the balance available to the faculty mentor, subject to 10% Rutgers overhead. Applicants without a named industry co-mentor will be assisted in locating one by the scholarship steering committee.

    The directing professor and student will receive free admission
    to the 2023 NCB conference and will make either an oral or poster
    presentation at the conference. The research will be published in the
    Statistics in Biopharmaceutical Research (SBR) special NCB conference issue subject to the normal refereeing process. Students from currently underrepresented groups in the nonclinical biostatistics community are strongly encouraged to apply.

    Interested applicants should submit the following by 15 November by email to John Kolassa, kolassa@stat.rutgers.edu :

    1. Names and contact information for the student, faculty sponsor,
    and industry mentor.

    2. A research proposal of no more 1000 words.

    3. Student CV and transcript.

    4. Anticipated period of research. Specify that the research will
    be conducted over a summer, a semester, or longer.

    5. A plan for allocating the funds.
