NZSA and Funding
The NZSA is not, in general, a funding body. Normally funds may be provided as a float for NZSA or conjoint conferences, and to enable statistics students to attend NZSA Conferences. Grants may be given from the Campbell Bequest Fund, and are coordinated by the Awards Committee. The NZSA sponsors prizes at Science Fairs throughout New Zealand. The NZSA Executive may at times provide other forms of sponsorship at its own discretion.
Campbell Bequest Fund
The NZSA were the recipients of a very generous donation ($48,000) from Professor Campbell’s estate. A group of the executive met to discuss options for use of this money, and recommended to the executive that the bequest be invested and interest from this be made available for special projects. The amount of funding available each year would be roughly $1500.
Full details of the fund, its application process, and projects it has supported, are given on the Campbell Bequest Fund page.
