Mentoring Award Committee

Visit the Mentoring Award Committee home page


The ASA Mentoring Award is given each year to a member who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership in developing the careers of statistics students, statisticians or statistical researchers early in their careers. The award honors those people recognized by their colleagues for their sustained efforts over a long period of time supporting the work and developing the careers of statisticians. The winner will be designated by the committee. The ASA and the mentoring award committee will strive for a diverse applicant pool that will ensure over time that the award recognizes work from all three sectors.

Composition: The committee will consist of seven members: a chair, who will be the ASA past president whose term coincides with the award year, and six members, with two members representing each of the three broad employment sectors (academe, industry, government). Two of the members will be appointed/reappointed each year by the ASA President Elect for three year terms.
