Useful information for young statisticians

Young statisticians are encouraged to join the NZSA. Membership is free for senior students at NZ universities or graduates of NZ universities studying overseas, and not in full-time employment.

Normally some funding is available to enable young statisticians to travel to NZSA conferences. Details are circulated with conference registration material. Special dinners for young statisticians are becoming a feature of our conferences.
