From Dr. Mark Ward, Associate Professor & Undergrad. Chair, Department of Statistics:
This is a Learning Community in Statistics with a research component for freshman who will be sophomores during the 2016-17 school year. Students from all majors are invited to apply, but they must be citizens, nationals, or permanent residences of the U.S.
Students will conduct research with mentors in Statistics and an applied discipline (of the students’ choice). For the research project, each sophomore student participant will receive a $4500 academic year stipend (2016-17) and a $4900 stipend in the summer (2017). In addition, students will receive funding to travel to multiple research meetings. Students will live in a sophomore-year residential learning community.
MA 26100 must be completed before the Fall 2016 semester. This means that if you are in Calculus 1 now, you’ll need to take Calculus III over the summer. It’s also recommended to complete STAT 3500 before Fall 2016 (but not required).
Callout meetings for this opportunity will be:
- Tuesday, September 15, 2015, at 4:30 pm in Stanley Coulter (SC), room 239
- Monday, September 21, 2015, at 4:30 pm in Smith Hall (SMTH), room 108
