2013 Conference

Are you a student using SAS in your research or course work?  Are you interested in connecting with other SAS users and enhancing your SAS skills?

The NorthEast SAS Users Group (NESUG) Conference is an educational event that encourages knowledge sharing among SAS users.  With support from SAS, NESUG is pleased to offer a limited number of Student Scholarships to selected students who are using SAS in their course work or research. 

Those selected as NESUG Student Scholars will enjoy complimentary registration for NESUG 2012 in Baltimore, Maryland.  This includes admission to Opening Session on November 11, keynote addresses, all paper and poster presentations and workshops on November 12 – 14, snacks and social events open to all attendees, plus an intensive half-day workshop on Sunday, November 11.  A select number of scholarships may include partial funding for travel or accommodations.  Other travel and accommodation expenses are not covered and will be the responsibility of the student.

Selection Criteria for Scholarship Awards includes:

  • Submission deadline of a complete application ended August 31.
  • Status as a student registered in a degree-granting program at the time of application and at the time of conference (November 2012).
  • Current use of SAS software for research or studies.
  • Commitment to volunteer at NESUG for ½ day during the conference.  NESUG is an all-volunteer organization made up of SAS users.  We expect that our scholarship recipients will volunteer at least ½ day of their time during the conference to assist NESUG, as many of our attendees do.  Volunteering is a great way to meet other SAS users and contribute to the success of the . conference. 

The scholarship application deadline is now closed. Decisions for scholarship acceptance will be communicated by email shortly after August 31.
