Dr John & Barbara Petkau Scholarship

In 2016, John and Barbara Petkau endowed two scholarships to recognize the academic merit of the next generation of statisticians and the impact they will have in solving world problems. One scholarship is for a student entering 3rd year and the other is for a student entering 4th year.

John Petkau, a professor in the Department,  has contributed in many ways to the Department and the discipline, with his vision and leadership, his statistical expertise, his generosity of time, his mentoring of both undergraduate and graduate students.  And his wife, Barbara, deserves special thanks, for generously sharing John's time with us.
