Through awards funded by the Statistics Fund for Excellence, the Department honours and encourages outstanding Statistics undergraduate and graduate students. This fund also supports various initiatives designed to improve our student experience. Currently, the fund supports the Nash Medal (an undergraduate award), the Marshall Prize (a graduate award), and Graduate Teaching Awards. Recently, the fund provided partial support for aspiring actuarial scientists to attend (and win!) a case competition at the 2017 Actuarial Students National Association Conference.
With your support of this Fund, the Department of Statistics can do even more to honour and support our extraordinary students.
