SAS/IIF forecasting research grant deadline September 28

Is there a forecasting problem you'd like to attack, and wouldn't mind a little financial support to do it? If so, the SAS/IIF Grant to Support Research on Forecasting may be just what you need to get started.

For the tenth year, in collaboration with the International Institute of Forecasters, SAS is providing $10,000 for research on how to improve forecasting methods and business forecasting practice. Two $5,000 grants will be awarded, and the application deadline is Friday September 28.

Applications must include:

  • Description of the project (at most 4 pages)
  • Letter of support from the home institution where the researcher is based
  • Brief (4 page) c.v.
  • Budget and work-plan for the project.

The Forecasting Principles website provides some suggestions for further research.
