Statistical Support Grant Pilot Program Call for Proposals
Summer 2021

 

Southern Connecticut State University is pleased to announce a pilot program to support graduate research that includes statistical analyses during the Summer of 2021. Grants of up to 20 hours of statistics consulting time with a faculty member on campus who is an expert in statistics will be awarded to graduate students to enable research in any academic discipline represented on the SCSU campus. Each student awardee must be currently enrolled in a graduate program as Southern and involved in a thesis or research capstone project guided by a faculty mentor.
Successful applicants will be awarded consulting time with faculty on campus who are experts in statistical methods. The consultant’s work will be compensated through a fund set up for this purpose and administered through the Sponsored Programs and Research (SPAR) office at SCSU. A list of faculty members who are available for this purpose will be posted on the RSAC website.
The purpose of these awards is twofold. First, it is to promote high quality research and creative activity at the graduate level by having students incorporate more rigorous statistical analyses into their thesis and capstone research projects. Second, we seek to stimulate grant proposals incorporating the most appropriate statistical research methods written by faculty at SCSU. Projects that could lead to future external grant proposals will be given preference.
PLEASE NOTE: Given the social distancing requirements that are currently in place due to the coronavirus, there is a significant chance that the consulting will need to be done remotely, for example, by videoconference, phone, or other similar means. Applicants should plan for that possibility.

Eligibility:
To be eligible, a student must:
• be a graduate student with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0;
• have completed at least 6 graduate-level course credits by the end of Spring Semester 2021;
• be enrolled in graduate courses for the Fall 2021 semester (i.e., students graduating in May are not eligible);
• be working on a thesis or capstone project with a mentor who is a full-time faculty member at SCSU.
For projects involving human participants or animal subjects, approval from the SCSU Institutional Review Board (IRB) or Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) must be in place before beginning the consulting with the statistical support faculty member, if the statistical consulting is directly involved in that work. If the statistical consulting involves aid in designing the experiment, prior to its execution, then that should be clearly stated in the proposal and in that case these approvals are not needed for the project and would be sought before the project begins.

To apply:
All required application materials must be fully completed, signed by necessary parties and submitted electronically to the Research and Scholarship Advisory Committee by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 6th. The application process must be completed in the Kuali platform starting at this webpage: https://southernct-apps.kuali.co/app/builder/#/run/Stat_Support_Application
Putting the browser into full-screen mode will provide the best viewing of this page, and all supporting files may be uploaded to that site. The following pages of this document may be used to guide the student and faculty mentor through the preparation of the application. Incomplete applications will not receive consideration.

Any questions about the program should be addressed to Dr. Elliott Horch at horche2@southernct.edu.
