Fully Funded Royal Statistical Society’s Statistical Excellence Award in Cardiff, Wales
Are you an early-career statistician with the ability to write data-driven stories in an entertaining and thought-provoking way? If so, we invite you to enter the 2018 Statistical Excellence Award for Early-Career Writing. The competition is jointly organised by Significance and the Young Statisticians Section of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and forms part of the RSS Statistical Excellence Awards programme.
The competition is open to:
1. Students currently studying for a degree, Master’s or PhD in statistics or related subjects.
2. Graduates whose last qualification in statistics or related subjects (whether degree, Master’s or PhD) was not more than five years ago.
The rules of entry are simple: send us your best article, of between 1500 and 2500 words, on the subject of your choosing.
Three finalists will be selected in June, with the winner announced in July at the RSS Statistical Excellence Awards ceremony. The winning article will be published in the October issue of Significance, and online at significancemagazine.com. Runners-up may also be published online or in print at the editor’s discretion.
The winning author and runners-up will be invited to give presentations based on their articles at a special session of the Royal Statistical Society International Conference (3–6 September 2018 in Cardiff, Wales).
