Biometrics Section Invites Applications for Funding to Support Projects

1 April 2019 No Comment

The ASA Biometrics Section invites applications for funding to support projects developing innovative outreach projects focused on enhancing awareness of biostatistics among quantitatively talented US students. We are particularly interested in projects encouraging students to pursue advanced training in biostatistics.

We anticipate funding one project this year, with total funding of up to $3,000. The project timeline would be from 1.5–2 years.

All investigators are encouraged to apply.

Award recipients must be ASA and Biometrics Section members before project initiation.

How to Apply

A three-page application is due by May 31 and should be in the following format:

  • Title, Objectives, and Specific Aims
  • Background, Significance, and/or Rationale
  • Design and Methods
  • Deliverables/Products
  • Budget

Expenditures such as supplies, domestic travel (when necessary to carry out the project), professional expertise (e.g., instructional designer or webmaster), and cost of computer time are allowed. Secretarial/administrative personnel, tuition, foreign travel, and honoraria and travel expenses for visiting lecturers to the investigator’s home institution are not allowed.

A project period with a start date no earlier than July 1, 2019, and an end date no later than June 30, 2020, also should be specified.

Applications should be submitted electronically to the Strategic Initiatives Subcommittee chair, Tanya Garcia.

All investigators will be expected to submit a brief report at the conclusion of the project to the subcommittee chair.
