Dear members,


The SSC is again awarding travel supplements for students from Canadian Universities attending the 2017 SSC meeting. These awards are funded by the Society and six of its sections: Actuarial Science, Statistical Education, Biostatistics, Survey Methods, Business and Industrial Statistics, and Probability.

Awards will be given at the 2017 SSC Annual Meeting at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg for research presentations made by students. Awards will be given for oral and poster presentations. Entries will be judged on the quality of both the presentation and the underlying research. The awards consist of a certificate and a cash prize.
