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 at the time of his death. Faculty
and students throughout Hopkins are
eligible to apply for funding for collaborative projects
with a member of the faculty in the
Mathematics and Statistics Department. Most grants will
be less than $5,000.
Among the items eligible to be funded are 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.
Proposals should be brief, preferably no more than
three single-sided pages; provide itemized
expense estimates; and be signed by each investigator.
Proposals may be submitted at any time to
committee chair John Wierman, Applied Mathematics and
Statistics Department, 302 Whitehead Hall.
Change for Hopkins Children's
That spare change rattling around in your desk drawer, coat
pocket and backpack can add up to real dollars to help
care for the young patients and their families at the
Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
Anyone wanting to become a change gatherer or
contributor in "Change for Change," part of the
annual Mix 106.5 FM Radiothon to benefit the center, can
receive a free kit by contacting Marisa
Jaffe, 410-516-7495 or
firstname.lastname@example.org. The person who collects the most
money by the start of
the Radiothon, Thursday, Feb. 28, wins a free lunch and the
chance to be on the air with JoJo Girard
and Reagan Warfield on Sunday, March 2.
