Econometrics Honours Memorial Scholarship

Econometrics Honours Memorial Scholarship

These prestigious scholarships are awarded in memory of the tragic events that took place during October 2002 in the Department Econometrics and Business Statistics, and its honours students. A major fundraising campaign was launched by the Econometrics and Business Statistics Department and its alumni, and this, along with contributions from many others, has enabled the faculty to offer these scholarships.
