The Survey Research Methods Section (SRMS) of the American Statistical Association (ASA) is offering students the opportunity to compete for the 2016 JSM Student Travel Award. The JSM is the “Joint Statistical Meetings,” the largest gathering of statisticians held in North America (Chicago, Illinois). Support is offered for students to attend this year’s Joint Statistical Meetings, to be held from July 30 to August 4, 2016. So are you a student (Bachelor, Master or doctoral), studying this discipline? Then you have the great opportunity to win! Be quick, because the deadline is already on December 15, 2015.

What can I expect from the JSM Experience?

  • You will have access to new and innovative sessions, social events, and career opportunities.
  • You will receive information about the latest statistical software in the EXPO, where you also can win prizes.
  • You will have the opportunity to meet others in your field and learn about other fields.
  • Most of all, you will have the opportunity to have fun while building relationships and networking with other statisticians from around the world.

Students are able to present a paper or poster at the conference. In addition, applications must be supported by a current member of the SRMS. Approximately 6 awards of up to $800 each are expected to cover conference expenses. Winners are expected to attend JSM sessions and the SRMS Business meeting to be recognized. Note, previous SRMS student travel award winners and JSM 2016 student paper competition winners are not eligible for this award.
