Bryant Scholarship Applications Are Open

Applications are being accepted for the Edward C. Bryant Scholarship for an Outstanding Graduate Student in Survey Statistics until March 1. One scholarship recipient is selected annually and receives a certificate and cash prize of $2,500.

Selection of the scholarship recipient is made by the ASA Bryant Scholarship Award Committee based on the following criteria:

  • Potential to contribute to survey statistics
  • Applied experience in survey statistics
  • Performance in graduate school

Westat established the Edward C. Bryant Scholarship Trust Fund in 1995 to honor its cofounder and chair emeritus and help support a student’s graduate education.

Under Bryant’s leadership, Westat—an employee-owned statistical firm established in 1961—has grown into one of the world’s leading statistical research corporations serving federal, state, and local governments, as well as businesses and foundations.
