Are you a student using SAS in your research or course work? Are you interested in connecting with other SAS users and enhancing your skills?
The NorthEast SAS Users Group (NESUG) Conference is an annual educational event that encourages knowledge sharing among SAS users. With support from SAS, NESUG is pleased to offer a limited number of Student Scholarships to selected students who are using SAS in their course work or research.
Those selected as Student Scholars will enjoy complimentary registration for NESUG 2013 in Burlington, Vermont. This includes admission to Opening Session and dinner on September 8, all paper and poster presentations and workshops on September 9 – 11, and breaks and social events open to all attendees. Students are encouraged to submit a paper or poster proposal (see Call for Presentations) and those who have a paper or poster accepted may also be eligible for a small travel stipend. Other travel and accommodation expenses are not covered and will be the responsibility of the student.
Criteria for Scholarships include:
- Online submission of a complete application by May 6
- Status as a student registered in a degree-granting program at the time of application and at the time of conference (September 2013)
- Current use of SAS software for research or course work
- Commitment to volunteer at NESUG for ½ day during the conference.
NESUG is an all-volunteer organization made up of SAS users. We expect that our scholarship recipients will volunteer at least ½ day of their time during the conference to assist NESUG, as many of our attendees do. Volunteering is a great way to meet other SAS users and contribute to the success of the conference.
Acceptance will be communicated via email by June 15.
For more information, please contact NESUG’s Student Scholarship Co-ordinator.
