Student Travel Award 2020

The SSC is again awarding travel supplements for students from Canadian Universities attending the 2020 SSC meeting. These awards are funded by the Society and three of its sections: Statistical Education, Biostatistics, and Business and Industrial Statistics, as well as SSC fundraising efforts.

Who is eligible:

Any full-time student at a Canadian University presenting a poster or giving a talk in a Contributed or Invited Paper Session. In the case of multiple authors, only one award will be given per presentation.

Who is ineligible:

A student who has received an SSC Travel Award within the last two years, or a student that is only attending the SSC Student Conference, or a student who is only participating in a Case Study Session.

This award is to be used towards travel costs to the conference up to a maximum of $750.

To apply for the award, please submit an abstract to the 2020 Annual Meeting, and indicate that you would like to apply for the travel award. 

Have your supervisor send an email indicating that you are currently a full-time student to the Chair of the Student Travel Grants Committee, by March 1, 2020.

The deadline for applications (via abstract submission) is February 16, 2020. Visit for further details.
