    The award was established in 2022 through an endowment created by Deborah G. Mayo (Philosophy, Virginia Tech) to honor the contributions of David R. Cox to the foundations of statistical inference, experimental design, and data analysis. The award is given in odd numbered years and includes a $2,000 honorarium and up to $1,000 that can be used for travel expenses to give an invited lecture at the Joint Statistical Meetings.<o:p></o:p>

    The goal of the award is to promote research and teaching that illuminates conceptual, theoretical, philosophical, and historical perspectives on statistical science and to advance understanding of comparative approaches to the interpretation and communication of statistical data.<o:p></o:p>
