The Washington State Society and RTI International set up the award to ‘annually recognize a statistician in early to mid-career (less than 15 years after his/her terminal degree) who has made significant contributions to one or more of the areas of applied statistics in which Gertrude Cox worked: survey methodology, experimental design, biostatistics, and statistical computing’ (American Statistical Association, 1st January 2013).

The award comprises a $1,000 honorarium, a plaque and travel expenses to attend the Washington Statistical Society’s annual dinner where the award will be given and the awardee will present a talk.

Nominations should be emailed to Karol Krotki at by 28th February 2013 with a supporting statement and CV (or link).
