Statistics Help

Faculty and graduate students in the Consulting Program of the Departments of Biostatistics and Statistics offer free statistical advice to University of Washington faculty, staff, and students through scheduled 50 minute consulting appointments during academic quarters when class is in session.  They provide assistance with:

  • the design of studies and experiments, including the preparation of grant proposals
  • data visualization and presentation
  • choice and application of statistical methods
  • development of specialized statistical methods in some cases

Creating posters

All UW students, faculty and staff have access to the UW Design Help desk. A free resource, they’re open to consulting on graphic/visuals and poster design. While they won’t make your poster for you, they can offer advice and suggestions to make your work more effective.

Public speaking

UW students can get one-on-one public speaking tutoring at the UW Department of Communication’s Speaking Center. They also have free coursera public speaking courses, accessible through the Speaking Center’s website.

Beyond the center’s research scholarships, travel scholarships and awards, the School of Nursing maintains a financial support page with a list of internal and external opportunities.
