2015 Diversity Mentoring Program

As part of the annual Joint Statistical Meetings we hold a multi-day mentoring program designed to bring minority graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and junior professionals together with senior-level statisticians and faculty in academia, government, and the private sector. The program encourages the development of mentoring relationships and network building in general.


The application period for the 2015 program has closed and candidates have been notified of their application status.
