Are you a student using SAS to benefit your field of study?


Each year a select number of students from around the world earn the title SAS Student Ambassador. These students join more than 3,000 other SAS users to participate in the annual SAS Global Forum.  SAS Global Forum brings together the best and brightest SAS users to share ideas and learn from others.

The SAS Student Ambassador program is a competitive program designed to recognize the top students using SAS as part of their academic coursework and research.  Students use SAS in many interesting and innovative ways over the course of earning their degree.  If you have used SAS for a project that has helped solve a business problem or helped benefit your field of study, now’s the time to apply for consideration as one of this year’s SAS Student Ambassadors.

Students selected as SAS Student Ambassadors receive an award package which includes flight and hotel expenses, conference registration, pre-conference tutorial, meal package and more to attend and present their work. SAS Global Forum 2014 will be held March 23-26 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, DC.  This is the premier event for SAS users and is one that you’ll look forward to attending year after year.

The road to becoming a SAS Student Ambassador begins with two easy steps

SAS Student Ambassadors are required to present their work at the annual SAS Global Forum. The call for content is open now, so step one is to submit your abstract and working draft.  The second step for consideration as a SAS Student Ambassador is to complete the application. The call for content and the student ambassador application process will close on October 21, 2013 so get your submissions and applications in as soon as possible.
