Undergraduate Summer Program for Statistics

Posted to News  |  Nathan Yau

If you’re an undergraduate with an interest in data and statistics, you should definitely consider applying to this one-week summer program: Explorations in Statistics Research. It’s in Boulder, Colorado and your travel expenses, along with room and board, will be covered.

The seven day workshop is designed so that students get a sense of how statisticians approach large, complex problems. Several different topics will be presented over the course of the week.

You’ll also get hands-on experience with computing and visualization tools. Basically, you’re going to have fun with data when you’re there.

And since three of the four organizers are either past or current advisers of mine, I can tell you first-hand that you’re going to learn some cool stuff during the workshop.

Get your application in now. The deadline is March 3.
