The Noether Young Scholar is selected based on significant accomplishments in nonparametric statistics, interpreted broadly to include theory, methodology, and outstanding applications. Eligibility for this award is for those who obtained their PhD degree or an equivalent degree in the past six years.

To be eligible candidates should be involved in nonparametric methodology, either theoretical or applied.
