Since 1998, Pollara Strategic Insights has provided annual bursaries to the top statistical methods students in the political science departments at Canadian universities. Recipients must demonstrate sophisticated proficiency with advanced statistical methods as well as excellence in using these techniques to illuminate deep insights and distill a clear understanding of the human themes and dynamics at play within public opinion datasets.
At Carleton University, the Pollara Statistical Confidence Award is given to those political science students who produce the best quantitative analysis papers at an advanced stage of their studies.
This year’s Carleton recipients are Michael E. Campbell, a doctoral student in Political Science, and Zoe McKnight, a recent graduate of the Political Economy MA program and currently a policy analyst at the Labour Program at Employment and Social Development Canada. Congratulations Michael and Zoe!
Carleton’s award announcement and more information on the recipients’ research papers can be found on the Carleton University Department of Political Science webpage.
