Submitting a Request for a JSM-related Section Award

Most sections offer an awards program such as JSM paper competition awards, student JSM travel awards, distinguished achievement awards, etc. Because there are so many, we require you to submit an award request using the online form located at the bottom of this page. 


All awards that include financial compensation in the form of reimbursement will be treated as an honorarium beginning in 2024.The option of travel reimbursement sent to ASA after JSM is no longer available.


Because most awards involve a cash prize only section chairs or treasurers can access, complete, and authorize this transaction.  


All awards must be submitted no later than June 1st.  

If a cash prize is included with the award, please let your recipient(s) know they will need to provide both the banking information listed below and a completed W9 (US citizens and permanent residents) or a W-8BEN (non-US residents) sent through ASA’s secure online portal. When uploading the tax form please ensure the name is included in the filename – example: LastName_FirstName_W9_AwardName.
