Section JSM Awards

Submitting a Request for a JSM-related Section Award

This process is for Sections that offer awards which culminate in participation at the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM). To ensure smooth processing of these awards, we require the submission of an award request using the online form linked at the bottom of this page.

Beginning in 2024, all awards that include financial compensation will be treated as an honorarium rather than travel reimbursement. This change will help reduce the burden on the recipient and will expediate the processing of the award.  

Since 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.

           Routing number 

           Account number 

           SWIFT Code (International Accounts Only)
