Student Travel Grants

Under this programme, students or young researchers from an IFIP member country may apply for travel grants. Young researchers are researchers at pre-doctoral level, with an age limit of 35 years the time of the conference. Preference will be given to those who would otherwise not have the resources to attend the conference.

Grants cover the students' travel and lodging expenses up to a maximum of 500 Euros per grant. Students should note that the grant sizes are fixed, so that any costs in excess of the grant will not be reimbursed.

Applications for grants will be evaluated by a committee consisting of the responsible IFIP WG chair (or TC6 chair for events not sponsored by WGs) and two others selected by the conference chair(s). Grants will be awarded based on the evaluating committee's assessment of the student's genuine financial need, the potential benefit to the student's education, research, and career, and the potential benefit to the conference. The committee may favour students who are (co-)authors of accepted papers (or possibly posters) to avoid "no shows," and may decide to make only one award per university.

To apply for a grant, students should send a letter to the Conference chairperson explaining how they believe attending the conference will benefit them. The letter should quote the lowest available airfare from the student's location to the conference site, and the bank account details of the student's institution for reimbursement. The application should include a letter from the student's graduate advisor describing the student's work and the benefit to that work of attending the conference.
