Student Volunteers and Travel Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity and sponsorship of the National Science Foundation and IEEE, we have a limited number of scholarships to award to students to assist with travel and accommodation costs. Minor volunteer work may be asked from some of these students (handing-in mics during Q&A periods, or help with early morning registrations). The amount of each scholarship is not yet determined and depends on the number of applicants and last minute donations.

We encourage applications from students from a wide variety of institutions, diverse backgrounds, and first time attendees. Due to restrictions on the travel sponsorship, the majority of travel grants will be given to students enrolled in U.S. institutions, but we also have funds to cover the participation of a limited number of students from international institutions. Undergraduate and graduate students will be considered.

To apply for a scholarship, students should send the following to Mayank Varia, Luca Mariot and Kaitai Liang:

The deadline for applications is May 17, 2024, AoE.

Applicants will be informed whether they received a scholarship, the amount, and what will be expected from them, by June 3, 2024, AoE.

Awardees will have to register and pay upfront for all expenses, and then send scanned copies of all their receipts by email. They will then be reimbursed after the symposium for their expenses, up to the amount awarded for their travel scholarship.
