Student Travel Grants for US-based Institutions
Sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation
A limited number of student travel grants are available for students from US-based institutions to attend ACM SenSys 2018 or its affiliated conference/workshop/events. Women and minorities will receive the highest priority with research interests in wireless sensor networks and sensor-enabled smart systems.
- Application deadline: September 27, 2018, 11:59pm Eastern Time
- Notification of acceptance: October 8, 2018
The support is intended to partially cover the costs of attending the conference. The costs include conference registration, transportation, lodging, and meals. Students receiving travel awards may be expected to volunteer at BuildSys 2018. Such volunteer tasks will not interfere with attendance at the conference sessions. Selection for the student travel grants will be in accordance with the following guidelines:
- The applicant must be a current student at a recognized US institution of higher education.
- The applicant’s field of study must be related to SenSys topics.
- Priority will be given to female and under-represented students, as well as students pursuing their graduate studies in minority serving institutions, such as historically African-American Universities, Hispanic serving institutions, Tribal colleges, and Universities, and institutions that serve Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and persons with disabilities.
- Student authors and presenters who do not have the financial support to attend the conference.
- Students from under-represented states and institutions are specifically encouraged to apply.
- Consideration will be given to other applicants falling outside the above categories, but they need to demonstrate a well-justified financial need.
HOW TO APPLY
1. The student applicant must fill up the application form here (link).
2. The student should request her academic/research advisor to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "ACM SenSys Travel Award Support Letter" and no more than a few sentence response to each question below (bullet point response appreciated for each question below in your letter):
- a. Name of the student applicant and degree program enrolled this semester.
- b. Does the student belong to a group that is under-represented in STEM? If yes, describe.
- c. Is your institution a minority-serving or an under-represented institution or in an under-represented state? If yes, describe.
- d. If the student is presenting a paper, did the paper result from a funded project? If yes, please state the title of the paper and the source of funding.
- e. If the student receives this travel award, will you or your institution cover the costs that exceed the award?
- f. Do you strongly support the application from this student for this travel award? Please provide any statements in support of this application.
Successful applicants will receive an award letter by e-mail together with instructions on how to receive partial refunds, which will be issued to the person or institution that covered the expenses. Note that the student’s institution or advisor is expected to cover the remaining expenses for the travel if the NSF budget does not completely cover it.
