Our available donation funds
ISI Outreach Fund
The ISI Outreach Fund enables statisticians from developing countries to participate in the ISI World Statistics Congress and other events. The participants are selected on the basis of their contributions and expected impact on the statistical capacity in their home country.
ISI General Donations Fund
The ISI General Donation Fund is used for the promotion of the statistical profession. Examples are promotional videos and materials.
ISI Fund for the Women’s Statistical Literacy Project
The ISI Statistical Capacity Building (SCB) Committee invites ISI members to support, through donations, the project “Women’s Statistical Literacy” (WSL). The aim is to increase statistical literacy of women in developing countries, through hands-on courses devoted to increasing statistical skills in data management and visualization, using basic statistical tools and open source software.
The project stems from the work started by Eric Vance, member of the SCB Committee and founder of the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis (LISA), and Tinuke Adebanji who organized a workshop in Kumasi (Ghana) on “Building Capacity of Female Scientists in Data Analysis for Decision Making and Strategic Planning”. The ISI SCB Committee is planning to organize a second course in Ghana and is looking for new locations in Africa and elsewhere.
DG Kendall Award
This Prize for excellent young researchers, who are members of either the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) or the Bernoulli Society (BS), is awarded every 2 years, alternating between probability and mathematical statistics. Its name honours David G. Kendall, who was the first BS president and was awarded the Guy Medal in Silver (1955) and in Gold (1981) of the RSS.
The prize will be presented at a major BS conference (typically the Bernoulli-IMS World Congress or the ISI WSC) or an RSS conference (as specified by the applicant).
BS General Fund
Donations to this Fund go to support the organization as a whole and not into a specific fund. Examples include travel costs for named speakers at World Conference, and BS Open Access Journal contributions.
BS Young Researchers Outreach Fund
The fund finances the travel and accommodation of young researchers from developing countries (as per the World Bank classification) to attend the Bernoulli-IMS 10th World Congress in Probability and Statistics (12–16 July 2021), including the Pre-meeting for Young Researchers (17–18 July 2021), in Seoul, South Korea.
IASS Cochran-Hansen Prize Fund
The prize is awarded every two years for the best paper on survey research methods submitted by a young statistician from a developing or transition country. The Cochran- Hansen Prize consists of books and journal subscriptions in the value of € 500. In addition, the prize winner is invited to present his/her paper at the World Statistics Congress of the ISI. The fund will be used to buy books and to cover awardee’s travel expenses to attend the WSC.
IASC Young Researcher Travel Fund
The IASC Young Researcher Travel Fund provides partial travel support to young IASC members from developing countries aged 35 or younger to attend an IASC-sponsored event (such as a conference, workshop, school, or other). Preference will be given to young researchers from these countries who are in financial need and actively participate at the event as a speaker, poster presenter, or in another active role.
IASC Development Fund
The IASC Development Fund supports young researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students who are IASC members as deemed appropriate by the IASC Executive Committee.
TIES Abdel El-Shaarawi Early Investigator’s Award (AEEI)
The award was established through a motion of the Board of Directors in 2001, and the subsequent definition of the nature of the award:
I move that as a fitting recognition of, and show of appreciation for, Abdel’s outstanding contribution and dedication to TIES, he be honored by our establishment of an annual award or lectureship in his name.
— Francis Philbert
The prestigious AEEI award 2019 is granted to an early investigator, who is a TIES member for the previous and actual year of the award conferment, and has received their PhD within 12 years of the submission deadline for nominations. The award includes:
- TIES/WSC conference registration (it depends on which conference takes place on that particular year),
- Cash award (€1000).
The award recipient is invited to make a presentation at the regional TIES or WSC conference.
