Deadline for Bernoulli Award Submissions
Friday, April 21, 2017
The Bernoulli Awards is an annual competition that recognizes outstanding research papers authored by undergraduate students who use statistical methods to analyze an applied problem judged to be important, timely, and original. It gets its name from the Bernoulli random variable, the most common random variable in statistics.
Inaugurated in 2008, the competition is funded by an anonymous alumnus to recognize Notre Dame undergraduates poised to submit research papers to peer-reviewed, scholarly journals.
Awards decisions are made by a panel of Notre Dame faculty, including at least one in each College from which students apply. There is no set number of awards made. Over the past three years, one out of every five students has won at least an honorable mention.
FIRST PRIZES: $5,000
SECOND PRIZES: $2,500
HONORABLE MENTIONS: $1,000
Judges focus on whether papers have the potential to be published in well-respected, peer-reviewed outlets in the relevant discipline. Special emphasis is placed on:
(1) the intellectual merit of the research question addressed;
(2) the use of appropriate, state-of-the-art statistical techniques; and
(3) the significance and/or novelty of the results.
Winning papers are posted on the Department of Economics website, although the authors still retain the right to publish them in other outlets.
All undergraduate students from across the University are encouraged to enter. Submissions to the Bernoulli Awards are neither limited to economics majors nor to students majoring in the College of Arts and Letters.
Papers can have more than one author (in which case the prize is split equally) but cannot have coauthors not currently enrolled as undergraduates at the University.
Students who would like to have a research paper considered for a Bernoulli prize must submit it as an electronic file in PDF format to email@example.com. The text of the paper must be in 12-point font, double-spaced, and with standard one-inch margins. There is no explicit page limit, but submissions of not more than 50 pages are preferred. The deadline for submissions is April 21, 2017.
A submission must also be accompanied by the name of a member of the Notre Dame faculty who endorses it. If the paper is based on research conducted in a Notre Dame professor’s laboratory, the supervising professor should separately submit a brief letter indicating the unique contribution of the student and publication plans for the research (anticipated authorship and outlet).
Notre Dame 48 Hour Video Workshop
Friday, April 21, 2017 - Sunday, April 23, 2017
University of Notre Dame
Over 48 hours, beginning at 7PM on Friday night April 21 and ending with a glorious celebration on Sunday evening April 23, teams of producers, writers, directors, actors, shooters and editors will create two-to-three minute videos on and around the Notre Dame campus.
The weekend will be designed to be fun, experimental, intense, and a little crazy. You’ll be formed into teams of fellow students and given some very simple “requirements”
– A genre
– A line of dialogue
– A character
– A prop
On Friday night, your team will come up with a basic concept, your writer will write, and your producer will organize for the coming day.
On Saturday, your team will shoot your video. You’ll end shooting at 7PM on Saturday, when we’ll upload your video for editing.
Saturday night / Sunday will be spent editing. The final video will be delivered at 3PM (no later!) on Sunday, when a team of judges (our “pro tip” professionals and some ND faculty) will review the videos.
Sunday night will end with a glorious celebration of your work. We’ll meet in Browning, show the videos, and host a panel discussion with members of each team, sharing the highlights (and lowlights) of the weekend.
All Notre Dame students, regardless of major, can sign up here.

The exhibition’s curators (Rachel Bohlmann and Jean McManus) will give guided tours of the show every Thursday at 12:30 pm, February through March, excluding March 16 (February 2, 9, 16, 23, March 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30). Tours will last up to an hour.
