L. J. Cote M.S. Excellence in Statistics Award

The L. J. Cote M. S. Excellence in Statistics Award funds are for expenses and honorarium for a student who will be completing an M.S. in Applied Statistics. The criteria for selection are the qualities required of an applied statistician:

  1. Technical skill as evidenced by course performance, faculty evaluation and performance on the final M.S. Examination.
  2. Skill in consulting and communication, normally evidenced by excellence in supervised consulting or secondarily in teaching.

The award is in honor of Professor Louis J. Cote who retired from the Department of Statistics in 1991. It may be awarded as often as once a year.
