SISG Scholarships

The Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics (SISG) has received NSF funding for scholarships for US graduate students. The goal of SISG is to strengthen the statistical and genetic proficiency and career preparation of scholars from all backgrounds, especially those from groups historically underrepresented in STEM such as racial and ethnic minority groups, low income, first generation college students, veterans, and differently abled and 2SLGBTQ groups. For 2021 the scholarships will provide registration, travel, housing and meal costs. With the need to be online only in 2020, scholarships will be for registration.

Scholarship applications and details of the 18 modules in SISG are at www.biostat.washington.edu/suminst/sisg Applicants can choose from basic statistics and genetics courses; population, quantitative and forensic genetics; GWAS and network analysis; Bayesian and compositional data analysis, and several others. Each module will have pre-recorded lecture and interactive Zoom sessions, along with downloadable data and software.
