SOS Program January 2014

SCARL is proud to offer
an hour of statistical consulting to UBC graduate students at no charge to the student.

The Statistical Opportunity for Students (SOS) program is designed to help graduate students formulate and understand the statistical issues involved in their research projects. The program is open to all UBC graduate students. Interested students submit a one page description of their work outlining their statistical questions. They will then meet with consultants for an hour to discuss their questions and receive a written summary and report shortly after the meeting, all at no charge.

Further details on the program and how to apply are here.

The SOS program is made possible
through funding support from the Office of the Provost and Vice President, Research and International.

Notice to non-UBC-affiliated ("off-campus") clients.
UBC requires a contract be signed before work can commence with non-UBC-affiliated clients. We have a Master Service Contract (MSC) that should cover most projects. Please fill out the relevant portions of the contract including the "Description of Work" and "Deliverables". We will review the specific details of the MSC to create the final form for all parties to sign. Other than the specific details of the MSC that can be edited, the MSC must be used as is.  Individual contracts can be negotiated through the University-Industry Liaison Office (UILO) for those clients who do not wish to use the MSC.
