Student Travel Grants
ACM SIGACT is pleased to provide funds to support student registration, travel, and accommodation for STOC 2019 (which is held as part of FCRC 2019). These travel awards are for students who are short on funds and are intended to help cover their registration, travel, and accommodation expenses. An advisor may support the applications of at most two students for a travel award.
To apply, you will need to fill out the following form by April 22, 2019 in which you provide basic information about yourself, an estimate of your expenses, and a brief statement:
In addition, you will need to have your advisor send a letter of support to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 22, 2019. Your advisor's letter should also describe the availability of other travel funds. This letter should be sent with subject line "support letter for [your name]". This is very important. Your application is not complete without this letter.
Late applications (after April 22, 2019) will not be accepted. You will be notified about your status by April 29.
Notes: Receipts will be required for all travel awards, and reimbursements will be made after the conference. Food or visa expenses will not be reimbursed. It is expected that total reimbursement will be limited to a maximum of $500 for those from North America and a maximum of $750 for those from overseas. It may be less, depending on the number of people that apply.
TCS Women Travel Awards
In addition to regular student travel awards, there are additional travel awards available for female attendees through TCS Women. See their Travel Scholarship Page for more details. The application deadline for this travel scholarship is April 25, 2019.
You may apply for both travel awards. The total awarded amount will depend on projected expenses and availability of funding.
