Ellis R. Ott was a founding member of the NY/NJ Metropolitan Section. A scholarship in his name, the Ellis R. Ott Scholarship for Applied Statistics and Quality Management was created to honor him.
The scholarship is intended to support students who are enrolled in, or accepted into, a master’s degree or higher program with a concentration in applied statistics and/or quality management. This includes the theory and application of statistical inference; statistical decision making; experimental design, analysis, and interpretation of data; statistical process control; quality control; quality assurance; quality improvement; quality management; and related fields. The emphasis is on applications, as opposed to theory. Studies must take place at US or Canadian institutions.
Qualified applicants must have graduated in good academic standing in any field of undergraduate study. Scholarship awards are based on demonstrated ability, academic achievement, industrial and teaching experience, involvement in student or professional organizations, faculty recommendations, and career objectives.
The Statistics Division of the ASQ administers this scholarship. Complete scholarship information and additional criteria are included on the application and instructions.
Deadline for application : April 1
