Student Travel Awards Available for International Conference on Health Policy Statistics

The International Conference on Health Policy Statistics (ICHPS) will take place January, 6–8, 2020, in San Diego, California. Student travel awards are available for undergraduate or graduate students at any level, as well as 2019 graduates. Students who submit an abstract by June 28 are eligible to submit a written paper for consideration for a student travel award.

The application deadline for the student paper travel award is 11:59 p.m. ET September 13, 2019.

Papers must present a solution to or a clear advance in a real-world health policy problem. Thorough and appropriate statistical analyses of health policy problems, issues, or questions pertinent to the goals of the ASA Health Policy Statistics Section are particularly encouraged. Identification of an important problem, correct application of study design and statistical methods, and clear interpretation of study results with discussion of potential policy impacts will be assessed as part of scoring.

The research proposed or described does not have to be complete, but applicants must submit a draft paper that describes the planned research and nature of the intended health policy application(s).
