The Bob Glahn Scholarship in Statistical Meteorology

Thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Harry R. “Bob” Glahn, longtime and recently retired Director of the NOAA/National Weather Service Meteorological Development Laboratory, the National Weather Association Foundation is pleased to offer this scholarship.

About the Bob Glahn Scholarship in Statistical Meteorology:
The NWAF Bob Glahn Scholarship in Statistical Meteorology is the largest scholarship offered by the NWAF. Dr. Harry R. “Bob” Glahn, longtime and recently retired Director of the NOAA/National Weather Service Meteorological Development Laboratory, is providing full funding for this National Weather Association Foundation Scholarship.

The NWA Bob Glahn Scholarship has been offered annually since 2012. The idea for this scholarship is to support someone who has a true interest in statistics and might be interested in a career in meteorology related to statistics. Good evidence of this would be some coursework in statistics or probability theory plus an expressed and demonstrated interest in this aspect of the profession.
