Student Travel Awards Offered

The Survey Research Methods Section (SRMS) offers student travel awards for students in any terminal degree program (bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral) in survey methodology or survey research disciplines.

Support is offered for student attendance at the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM), to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from August 1–6, 2020. Preference is given to students presenting a paper or poster at the conference. In addition to a short essay and college transcripts, applications must include a letter of recommendation by a current SRMS member.

Typically, awards of up to $825 are given, which includes $800 for JSM expenses and $25 for student membership in the ASA (student membership in SRMS is free). Award recipients are expected to attend JSM sessions and the SRMS business meeting/mixer to be recognized by the section.

Application forms are available. Previous SRMS student travel award winners and previous SRMS student paper competition winners are not eligible for this award.

The deadline for applications is December 16. Questions should be sent to Darcy Steeg Morris.
