Anona Thorne and Takao Tanabe Graduate Entrance Scholarship

We are grateful for the generosity of UBC Statistics alumna Anona Thorne and her husband Takao Tanabe who established this entrance scholarship, offered annually to students entering a graduate program in Statistics.  Anona Thorne (BA '91 Mathematics; MSc '93 Statistics) is a double alumna of UBC and went on to an interesting career using her statistics training at the CIHR Canadian HIV Trials Network at Saint Paul's Hospital in Vancouver. Takao Tanabe is an internationally acclaimed Canadian painter.

The scholarship will be offered for the first time to a student/students entering a graduate program in the fall of 2016.
