Statistical Support Pilot Program
Summer 2020

 

The Provost is pleased to announce a Statistical Support Pilot Program during the Summer of 2020. This program is an excellent opportunity for graduate students working on thesis and capstone projects involving statistical methods to receive consulting services from faculty on campus with statistics expertise. Faculty consultants will be paid at an hourly rate from a fund set up for this purpose and according to rules set forth in the AAUP contract, Section 10.12. Students will apply for up to 20 hours of consultant time, which will determine the total payment to the faculty member. In the Summer 2020 pilot program, we anticipate funding up to several student projects in different areas that will total approximately 100 hours of faculty time. At this time, we are soliciting proposals from graduate students, supported by their research advisors, for faculty consulting time to be arranged during the Summer of 2020. 

To apply:

The application should be submitted by the student to the Research and Scholarship Advisory Committee using the Kuali platform starting at this page: https://southernct-apps.kuali.co/app/builder/#/run/Stat_Support_Application

The deadline for receipt of the complete application, including a letter of support from the faculty mentor, is 4:00 p.m. Thursday, May 14, 2020. Incomplete applications will not receive consideration.
