There are no fees for grant preparation, provided
the SCL is a line item in the budget and/or an SCL staff consultant
becomes a co-investigator.
The Statistical Computation Lab (SCL) offers
statistical consulting services to Western Michigan students and
faculty, as well as to outside clients. In the past, we were able to
offer some free consulting to graduate students and faculty of WMU. But
due to budget cutbacks, we no longer have the TAs to offer this
service. However, we still offer the low rate of $40.00 per hour for
consulting with a statistical PhD graduate student.
For WMU faculty, the Department of Statistics
also offers consulting services. The fee is negotiated by individual
faculty (generally $150.00 per hour). But this fee can be offset by
grant participation and research opportunities.
These fees are negotiable, depending on service
required. Fees can also be negotiated for projects and contracts. Fees
for courses vary depending on their topic and length.
Please note: the SCL
does do funded research. In order to pay its bills (staff, hardware,
and software), just like any other organization, the funded research
has the highest service priority of the SCL.
