Nominations Wanted for 2021 COPSS Leadership Academy Award

The Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies (COPSS) Leadership Academy Award was established in 2020 to recognize early-career statistical scientists who show evidence of and potential for leadership and who will help shape and strengthen the field. The award is designed to both call attention to the efforts of these individuals and provide a mechanism for them to share their vision for the field with each other and the statistical community.

An eligible candidate will have received a terminal statistically related degree up to 10 years prior to the award year. In special circumstances (e.g., illness, childbirth, dependent care), the eligibility period may be extended by up to two years, but the nomination letter should outline the special circumstances. These determine only eligibility, and do not otherwise affect the selection process. Nominees must also be a member of at least one COPSS and Friend of COPSS society.

Nominations must be sent by January 15, 2021, in PDF format to Catherine Calder, COPSS Leadership Academy Award Committee chair.
