Student Travel Awards

The SSC is again awarding travel supplements for students from Canadian Universities attending the 2016 SSC meeting. These awards are funded by the Society and four of its sections: Biostatistics, Survey Methods, Business and Industrial Statistics, and Probability.


Who is eligible:


Any full-time student presenting a poster or giving a talk in a Contributed or Invited Paper Session, or participating in a Case Study 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. No more than two awards will be awarded per university department.


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


To apply for the award, submit all required information using the online application form.


Have your supervisor send an email indicating that you are currently a full-time student to the Chair of the Student Travel Grants Committee, studenttravel@ssc.ca.


The deadline for applications is March 15, 2016.
