The wait is almost over. SAS Global Forum is just around the corner and I can’t wait to get to Orlando and experience all the conference has to offer! One thing I am particularly excited about is the fact this year’s conference will host 38 students and faculty from academia who are attending as part of some form of SAS Global Forum Scholarship. Eleven of these scholarship winners are the 2012 SAS Student Ambassadors. Students from 13 countries applied for the opportunity to be a SAS Student Ambassador. These student researchers were selected as Ambassadors because their work exemplifies the use of SAS technologies in innovative ways that benefit their respective fields of study.
Meet the 2012 SAS Student Ambassadors!
