Undergraduate Statistics Project Competition (USPROC)
The Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE) in
conjunction with the American Statistical Association via a member initiative grant is
happy to announce that applications are being accepted for its sixth annual undergraduate
statistics project competition. The purpose of USPROC is to encourage the development of
data analysis skills, to enhance presentation skills and to recognize outstanding work by
undergraduate statistics students.
There are two main categories for submissions to the competition. The Undergraduate
Statistics Research Project competition (USRESP) is a competition for undergraduate
students who conduct research projects that are statistically related, either
methodological or applied. These projects may include research work from REU research
projects, senior capstone research projects, or independent research projects that are not
based on a specific course that students are taking. The Undergraduate Statistics Class
Project Competition (USCLAP) is for undergraduate students who are taking an applied
statistics course(s) at introductory, or intermediate levels, in which a class project is
part of the course work (either required or optional). All levels of projects for both
competitions are strongly encouraged to apply.
for additional details, contact information and a link to
submit your project. The submission deadline is May 31 , 2015 with winners announced
summer 2015. Cash prizes will be awarded.
Also, save the date of Friday, October 2 , 2015 for the first electronic undergraduate
statistics research conference where USPROC student winners and others will be able to
present their work. Details coming soon.
