Richard Lewis Tweedie played a significant role throughout his professional career in mentoring young colleagues at work and through professional society activities. With funds donated by his friends and family, IMS created the Tweedie New Researcher Award. The purpose is to fund travel to present the “Tweedie New Researcher Invited Lecture” at the IMS New Researchers Conference.
A new researcher is one who received their doctoral degree in one of the five calendar years preceding the year of nomination, or in the year of nomination, meaning, for the 2023 award with nomination deadline December 1, 2022, any of the years 2017–2022. The IMS gives the award committee latitude to consider nominees with extenuating circumstances that may have delayed professional achievements. Nominees should be members of the IMS at the time of nomination.
Up to U.S. $2000 per award, to be reimbursed against receipts.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
