Educational Ambassadors



Educational Ambassadors (EAs)

A fund in memory of Martha Aliaga, former ASA director of education who created the Educational Ambassador Program
with the Committee on International Relations in Statistics, helps support this program. Martha was passionate about
statistical education and international outreach. We remember and honor her extensive contributions to enhance statistics
education globally with this program.
Read more about Martha, her life, and her legacy.

The Educational Ambassador Program is an ASA outreach effort launched by the late Martha Aliaga and the Committee on
International Relations in Statistics to foster international collaboration and enhance statistics education worldwide.
The program subsidizes two ambassadors from developing countries to attend JSM and take CE courses. It also provides
a one-year ASA membership.
Candidates are required to have a PhD in statistics and an interest in teaching and be open
to study in new areas of research. After attending CE courses in emerging areas of research, the educational ambassadors
return to their respective countries and teach the subject matter covered in the CE course(s) within the next year to at
least 10 students.
