SSA Vic are proud and happy to announce that we will once again be offering financial support to our members for the attendance of statistical workshops, conferences, winter/summer schools and short courses; both national and international, in 2021. This includes for example, the ANZSC 2021, the ECSSC 2021 and AMSI Winter School.
Members are invited to apply for funding via one of the two schemes:
1. (Conferences 2021) We are offering up to $200 of total funding, per member, for the registration and travel expenses associated with attendance of national and international conferences; or
2. (Summer & Winter Schools/Short Courses/Workshops 2021)
We are offering up to $150 of total funding, per member, for the registration cost of short courses or workshops for their statistical development.
Members may apply to both schemes, however the total amount of funding available per member is $250 (e.g., if a member has received $150 for a Workshop, and then applies for conference expenses, then they will only be eligible for $100 from the Conference scheme). Members who were funded in 2020 are also eligible for funding in this 2021 round.
To be eligible for access to funding, the applicant must satisfy the following
- The applicant must be a member of SSA Vic at the time of application (Membership is only $20 for students!).
- Provide invoices/evidence of registration and expenses that the funding will be used to cover.
Members seeking more information may email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, by including the subject line "SSA Vic Funding Applications 2021".
Please note that the successful applicants may need to write a small report about their experience. Successful applicants that are presenting at the conference will need to acknowledge support from SSA Vic in their talks or poster. The names of all successful applicants will be publicly shared.
Please use the following form to apply for either funding schemes:
We hope that this funding program will help alleviate the financial burden of our members and look forward to receiving your applications.
