Policies and Guidelines for Including Biostatistics Support on Grants

Categories are  grants  tagged  research /  award /  stem /  masters degree /  phd degree

The guidelines lay out common scenarios and are meant to serve as a starting point for discussion for planning and budgeting purposes. In all cases, discussion with Biostatistics faculty early in the grant preparation process is necessary to ensure that the appropriate level of support is provided.

PhD faculty and master’s statisticians can participate in grant development in numerous ways including

  • assisting with the development of a research team;
  • assisting the investigators in defining and refining study aims and measures;
  • developing study designs;
  • writing statistical analysis plans;
  • computing the power or sample sizes necessary to achieve the study aims;
  • If Biostatistics effort in proposal development is not covered by funded projects, time spent on proposal development will be billed at the current hourly rate or MOU.

    Inclusion of Biostatistics Personnel in Project Budgets

    PhD faculty effort:Biostatistics faculty should be included as named co-investigators (typically as key personnel) on collaborative applications. While effort may vary from year to year, an average of 10% effort (1.2 calendar months per year) over the project period is suggested as a guideline for most clinical projects and more complex basic science projects (see effort allocation guidelines below). Faculty may not be included on budgets for less than 5% effort without the approval of the Chair of the Department of Biostatistics.

    Master’s statistician effort: Master’s statisticians and data management personnel provide assistance with data management, statistical programming, and preparation of reports and manuscripts. For most funded projects, master’s statistician should be coupled with PhD faculty effort.

    Effort Allocation Guidelines

    These guidelines provide suggested levels of support for projects of varying complexity and need of statistical expertise.

    Large or complex projects (e.g. multi-site clinical trials, cores for program projects or SPORES): Total biostatistics annual effort 50–100+% per year, such as 20% or more of PhD faculty time plus 30–100% master’s statistician FTE.

    Regular Projects (e.g., R01 involving clinical data, basic science project with complex analysis (eg. Omics data)): Total biostatistics annual effort 20–50%, such as 10–15% PhD faculty time plus 10–35% master’s statistician FTE.

    Simple Projects (e.g., project under 250K direct per year): Total biostatistics effort 5–20% per year, such as 5-10% PhD faculty time plus 5-10% master’s statistician FTE.

    Limited Scope projects: Total biostatistics effort <5% per year

    Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students and Institutional Expenditure Disclosures

    Categories are  financial-aid /  grants  tagged  stipend /  educational-fund

    Grants: 

    Grants are money given to students to help them pay for college. To get a grant, you usually need to show that you don't have enough money to pay for school on your own. You don't have to pay the grant back unless you do something that makes you no longer eligible. You also need to do well in your classes to keep getting the grant, following the rules set by your school for good academic progress.

    Federal Pell Grant: A Federal Pell Grant is free money for students who can't afford college. You don't have to pay it back unless you become ineligible. To see if you can get it, you fill out a form called FAFSA, which gives you a number that shows how much your family can contribute. Based on that number and other factors, they decide how much money you can get. But if you already have a bachelor's degree, you can't get this grant.

    Federal Supplemented Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG): The Federal SEOG is extra money for students who really need it, especially those who qualify for Pell Grants. Students don't have to pay it back unless they become ineligible, and if they already have a bachelor's degree, they can't get it.

    Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG): The Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG) is given by the state of Florida to students who need financial help and are studying for either a bachelor's or associate's degree. To get it, Students must meet Florida's residency rules, and take at least 12 credits per semester.

    William L. Boyd, IV, Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG): The William L. Boyd, IV, Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) helps Florida students studying at private non-profit colleges or universities in Florida by covering some of their tuition costs. To be eligible, you need to meet Florida's residency rules, take at least 12 credits each semester, and meet other requirements. It's a way to make college more affordable for Florida residents attending certain schools in the state.


    Loans: 

    Keiser University offers different types of loans to help students pay for their education, but students need to pay them back. The interest rates on these loans can vary, and you might need to make a minimum monthly payment.

    The William D. Ford Federal Direct Student Loans: The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program Keiser University was selected by the United States Department of Education to participate in the Federal Direct Student Loan Program as one of its initial 104 institutions. Lender and guarantee organizations are eliminated with a Federal Direct Stafford Student Loan. The application is handled internally by Keiser University, and the loan is provided by the U.S. Department of Education. The interest rates on the Federal Direct Student Loans are low.

    Unsubsidized Direct Loan: Unsubsidized Direct Loans are loans that both undergraduate and graduate students can get, and you don't need to show that you have financial need to qualify for them. But here's the catch: Interest starts adding up on these loans right from the moment you get them, while you're in school, during any deferment, and even during the grace period. The maximum amount you can get through an Unsubsidized Direct Loan depends on your year in school and whether you're a graduate student, but it ranges from $6,000 to $20,500.

    Federal Direct PLUS loan: The Federal Direct PLUS Loan is a type of loan offered to parents of dependent undergraduate students and also to graduate or professional students. It's meant to help cover the costs of college. However, it's important to know that this loan is not subsidized, which means that interest starts building up as soon as the student is in school and even during deferment (when payments are postponed).

    To qualify for this loan, there's a credit check to make sure the borrower (the parent or graduate student) has a good credit history. You'll need to start paying back both the principal (the original loan amount) and the interest 60 days after the loan is given to you.

    Federal Work Study: The Federal Work Study (FWS) program is like a job opportunity for students who are in college and need to earn some money to pay for their education. If Keiser University has this program, they can offer part-time jobs to students who have a financial need.

    These jobs usually require students to work around 15-20 hours each week. Some of these jobs might involve doing community service, which means you're working to help the community while earning money for your education. So, it's a way to earn some income while you're in school.


    Scholarships: 

    Keiser University Scholarship Programs: Keiser University provides different types of scholarships to students who meet certain requirements. These scholarships can be based on things like good grades or financial need, and they are available for students in associate, bachelor, or master's degree programs at the university.

    Private scholarships: There are private scholarships from organizations outside of the university. These scholarships have their own specific criteria, like needing to have high grades, a significant financial need, or outstanding academic achievements. Committees from these organizations decide who gets these scholarships. So, both the university and external organizations offer financial help to students who qualify based on their criteria.

    Keiser University keeps a full-time director of financial aid on staff at each location. To guarantee that you receive the money required for your educational investment, you are invited to schedule an appointment with the Financial Aid department. Those who meet the requirements can receive financial aid.


    In the end, we can say that Keiser University provides many different types of financial aid in order to help students make education accessible, financial aid such as loans, scholarships, and grants are useful for students.


    State Grants given by Grand Canyon University

    Categories are  grants /  loans  tagged  stipend /  teaching

    State grants and assistance programs are those financial benefits that help students pay for their education on the basis of the place they live. Let us look at the types of financial help provided by Grand Canyon University: 


    • LEAP: LEAP is a federal-state program giving grants to students facing financial needs. The grants can range from $100 to $2,500 per academic year, and it is to be noted that these grants don't need to be paid back.
    • ATSLP: ATSLP offers loans to Arizona residents who want to become teachers. You have to work as a teacher in an Arizona public school for one year to receive the loan. In certain cases, you can have some extra time before you start or pause your obligation.
    • The TEACH Grant program: The teach grant program provides grants that could turn into loans if you don't meet the requirements. You must complete entrance counselling and agree to serve as a teacher in high-need fields at low-income schools. These grants can be up to $4,000 per year.
    • Federal Pell Grant: The Pell Grant is for eligible undergraduates who show financial need. You don't have to pay it back. If you've already earned your first bachelor's degree, you can't get it. The amount of the Pell Grant changes each year. 
    • Federal SEOG: SEOG is for students with financial needs who meet the same federal eligibility as Pell recipients. Those with the lowest EFCs and Pell Grants get priority. It's first-come, first-served because funds are limited. Like the Pell Grant, you don't have to repay it. The usual award is $1,000 per year.


    To sum it up, we can say that state grants and federal programs like LEAP and TEACH offer financial help for students pursuing education. They have different eligibility criteria and require service commitments. These grants don't need to be paid back, but you must meet the program requirements to avoid them turning into loans.
