We are pleased to announce a new award opportunity that will be managed by the newly formed SCT Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (ED&I)in an effort to extend invitations to students from underrepresented groups in the fields of biostatistics, statistics, epidemiology, nursing, data sciences and computer science to promote a racially and ethnically diverse SCT Membership.
This new Award category will be guided by the definitions of race and ethnicity used by the National Institutes of Health and will serve as a pipeline for students from underrepresented groups to have a one year membership of SCT and registration for the Annual Meeting (May 17-May 20, 2021) sponsored by SCT.
In addition, all awardees will be invited to attend a welcome reception with the SCT President, Chair and Members of the ED&I committee and will have an opportunity to network with SCT Leadership.
We welcome interested students to submit their nomination by filling the form:
https://www.sctweb.org/studentAward.cfm and emailing a copy of your current Student ID and a letter from your advisor certifying that you are a student to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that nominees may not be current or previous members of SCT, and each institution may nominate up to two students.
The deadline for submitting nomination is April 23, 2021. Awardees will be notified by May 7, 2021.
