Helping Baltimore Middle School Girls
Volunteers are needed at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 26, in the
Great Hall at Levering to help Baltimore middle school
girls complete an engineering project.
The Ready Set Design! program provides introductory
engineering experiences for middle school
girls in the Baltimore area through half-day weekend
programs on the Homewood campus.
The program is organized by the Johns Hopkins student
chapter of the American Society of
Statistics Research Funding
The Acheson J. Duncan Fund for the Advancement of Research
in Statistics requests proposals for small grants to
support research projects in statistics, probability
and stochastic processes. The fund was created in 1997 by
an endowment established by professor
emeritus Acheson Duncan at the time of his death. Faculty
and students throughout Johns Hopkins
are eligible to apply for funding for collaborative
projects with a member of the faculty in the Applied
Mathematics and Statistics Department. Most grants will
be less than $5,000.
Among the items eligible to be funded are travel to
conferences and workshops, computer
equipment and software, matching funds for grant proposals,
short-term visits of collaborators to
JHU, interdepartmental seminars, partial support for
research assistants and seed money for new
Proposals should be brief, preferably no more than
three single-sided pages; provide itemized
expense estimates; and be signed by each investigator.
Proposals may be submitted at any time to
committee chair John Wierman, Applied Mathematics and
Statistics Department, 302 Whitehead
