WSC Diversity Award

WSC Diversity Award

To improve outreach and diversity among young researchers in the field of simulation, the INFORMS Simulation Society is proud to award sponsorship each year to assist graduate students or postdocs to attend the Winter Simulation Conference (WSC). We especially encourage applications from women, underrepresented minorities, international students, or students who may add to the diversity of the community in other ways; however this award is not limited to specific genders or ethnicity groups. This year and in light of the global pandemic, WSC is being held virtually and instead of an honorarioum to cover the travel expenses, the awardees will have their registration fees refunded. 
The WSC Diversity Committee is looking forward to receiving high-quality applications for the 2020 WSC meeting in December. Please fill out the application form, which requires a letter of intent written by the applicant, and a letter of recommendation written by an adviser, and submit the form by November 20, 2020
