Edward C. Bryant Scholarship in Survey Statistics
Each year, an outstanding graduate student in Survey Statistics is awarded the Edward C. Bryant Scholarship to help support the student's graduate education.
Westat, Inc., established the Edward C. Bryant Scholarship Trust Fund in 1995 to honor its co-founder and long time leader. Under Dr. Bryant's leadership, Westat, an employee-owned statistical firm established in 1961, grew into what is now one of the world's leading statistical research firms with a full-time permanent staff of 800.
Selection of the scholarship recipient is made by the ASA Bryant Scholarship Award Committee. The committee will choose the recipient using the following criteria:
- Potential to contribute to survey statistics
- Applied experience in survey statistics
- Performance in graduate school
Each applicant should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the committee.
