WSC Diversity Award

WSC Diversity Award

In order 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 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. The WSC Diversity Committee is looking forward to receiving high-quality applications for the 2020 WSC meeting in December.

Please download the following application form with instructions on how to apply. A complete application package consists of this form, a letter of intent written by the applicant, and a letter of recommendation written by an adviser.

Please send applications by September 15th to the Awards Committee Chair:
