Awards and Grants

  • One of three authors on a successful Technology Innovation Grant (Fall 2001) at the University of Alaska Anchorage.  This grant was presented by the Information Technology Services Center and enabled the Mathematical Sciences Department to purchase statistical software for students.

  • Awarded a Professional Improvement Grant (October 2002) for the amount of $724.23 to attend the 46th Annual Fall Technical Conference and present a paper entitled “Better Industrial and Scientific Experiments: The Overview and New Directions.”

  • Awarded a Professional Improvement Grant (August 2004) for the amount of $1200.00 to attend the Joint Statistical Meetings in Toronto, Canada to present a paper entitled “Blocking Strategies for Factorial Experiments with Hard-to-Change Factors.”

  • Dr. Glen Richgels, Dr. Derek Webb, and Dr. Randy Westhoff of Bemidji State University were awarded a grant entitled “Improving Teacher Quality in Geometry and Probability and Statistics Grades 7-12” from the Minnesota Higher Education Services Office in 2004 and in 2005.  The grant was for the amount of $47,337.38 in 2004 and for $47,337.38 in 2005.  The grant enabled the creation and teaching of two summer courses each year for in-the-field junior high and high school teachers, one in geometry and one in probability and statistics.
