Data science/statistics-related events that promote interdisciplinary research or enable multidisciplinary collaborations.
Event registration fees.
Cost of activities and equipment to conduct research, such as salaries, stipends, or computers.
Up to $500 per award, per person, per semester. Only one (1) trainee per lab/supervisor/research group will be funded.
