Biopharmaceutical Section Creates Scholarship Award

Richard C. Zink, JMP Life Sciences

Beginning in 2018, the Biopharmaceutical Section will offer a scholarship of $1,000 to three students annually as part of the ASA awards program. The goal of this award is to recognize notable research, academic achievement, and applied project work related to biopharmaceutical statistics. In addition, the award will consider general academic performance, leadership, volunteering, and service.

Make sure to read about the section’s student paper competition, presented at the Joint Statistical Meetings. The deadline to submit the paper via PDF is December 11.

Eligible applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and be enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program in statistics or biostatistics. Further, while membership in the Biopharmaceutical Section is not required (though membership is free for students), ASA membership is a requirement.

Students can download an application and find submission instructions on the Biopharmaceutical Section website. Applications may be submitted from January 1 to March 15 each year.

Winners will be announced in mid-April and included in the ASA awards program at the Joint Statistical Meetings.
