The Mardia Prize

The Mardia Prize was founded by RSS fellow Kanti Mardia to encourage cutting-edge interdisciplinary work by bringing together statistics with other science communities through workshops in emerging interdisciplinary areas. The annual prize of £3,000-4,000 is made available to support workshops that bring statisticians together with other scientific communities and to maintain a sustained focus.

The next round of the Mardia Prize will open in spring 2024.
