Statistics Research Funding
The Acheson J. Duncan Fund for the Advancement of Research
in Statistics requests proposals for small grants to
support research projects in statistics, probability and
stochastic processes. The fund was created in 1997 by an
endowment established by professor emeritus Acheson Duncan,
a pioneer in research and application of quality control
and industrial statistics.
Faculty and students throughout Hopkins are eligible
to apply for funding for collaborative projects with a
member of the faculty in the
Applied Mathematics and
Statistics Department. Items funded might include
travel to research conferences and workshops, computer
equipment and software, matching funds for grant proposals,
short-term visits of collaborators to Hopkins,
interdepartmental seminars, partial support for research
assistants and seed money for new research. Most grants
will be less than $5,000.
Proposals should be brief, preferably no more than
three single-sided pages; provide itemized expense
estimates; and be signed by each investigator. They may be
submitted at any time to committee chair John C. Wierman,
Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department, 302
