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 Johns Hopkins are eligible to apply for funding for collaborative projects with a member of the faculty in the Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department. Most grants will be less than $5,000.

Among the items eligible to be funded are travel to conferences and workshops, computer equipment and software, matching funds for grant proposals, short-term visits of collaborators to JHU, 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. They may be submitted at any time to committee chair John Wierman, Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department, 302 Whitehead Hall.
