The Conference on Statistical Practice has the following three awards for registration and travel support:

John J. Bartko Scholarship Award - CLOSED
The John J. Bartko Scholarship Award, made possible through an endowment from John J. Bartko, provides up to $1,000 for registration and travel support. Applicants must be U.S. citizens who are in at least the second year of a master's degree program in statistics or biostatistics or who have completed such a program within the two years prior to the award date. Applications are due by January 4.

Lester R. Curtin Award - CLOSED
The Lester R. Curtin Award was established to help promising young health statisticians receive the skills and training they need to make significant contributions in their area of study. The award was created to honor the memory of Lester, or "Randy," and his long career of working tirelessly to teach and mentor his colleagues at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics. To be eligible for the $1,000 award, applicants must work in the field of health statistics (broadly defined as either applied, including public health policy, or clinical work) or in a graduate program to prepare for such work. Preference will be given to those who have been working in the field for five or fewer years or who are still in graduate school.

Lingzi Lu Memorial Award - CLOSED
Created by the ASA in partnership with the International Chinese Statistical Association in remembrance of Lingzi Lu, this award provides up to $1,300 for registration and travel support. To be eligible, applicants must be enrolled in a master's degree program in statistics or biostatistics at the time of application or have completed a master's degree in statistics or biostatistics no more than two years prior to the time of application.
