Undergraduate Statistics Project Competition and electronic undergraduate statistics conference

Submit your project for the June 30, 2017 deadline for class (USCLAPand research projects (USRESP)!

CAUSE (Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education - www.causeweb.org) and the American Statistical Association are happy to announce the eighth annual undergraduate statistics project competition (USPROC). 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.

Exciting changes! This year, we are using two submission cycles! The first submission deadline of December 23, 2016 has passed, and was for class and research projects happening in summer/fall 2016. The deadline of June 30, 2017 is for winter/spring courses and projects, and for year long projects. Winners will be announced within 2-3 months of the submission deadline.

Exciting changes! Now announcing that class project submissions can be as slides (up to 20 slides) or reports (up to 3 pages). See the (USCLAP) page for details.

There are two main categories for submissions to the competition.

  • Undergraduate Statistics Class Project Competition (USCLAP):
    This competition 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).
  • Undergraduate Statistics Research Project Competition (USRESP):
    This competition is for undergraduate students who conduct research projects that are statistically related, either methodological or applied. The types of research 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.

   Some general rules which apply to both competitions:

  • A project can only be submitted to one of USRESP or USCLAP--not both.
  • A student can be an author or a co-author of only one project submitted to the competition. Multiple submissions from the same student to one or both competitions (USCLAP and USRESP) are not allowed.


USPROC is a joint effort of the American Statistical Association and the Consortium for Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education
