Student Travel Grants

ACM SIGWEB is kindly offering a total of US$7000 in funding for Student Travel Awards. These awards are intended for student authors who have papers accepted in any of the tracks (full papers, short papers, posters, workshop papers) and who attend the conference and personally present their research. SIGWEB Student Travel Awards typically range in value from $250 to $750.

Student awards are intended to cover only a portion of the student’s overall expenses. The sizes of the awards in general will depend on the number of qualified applicants, and the amount of individual awards may vary depending on the distance traveled and the kind and ranking of the papers.

Students may submit applications prior to learning whether or not their papers have been accepted. However, travel awards will only be given to students who have an accepted paper or poster and who will be presenting that work themselves.

Applications for these awards should be submitted as soon as possible. To apply for a SIGWEB Student Travel Award, the student should submit the following:

  • A completed application form
  • A resume
  • A letter of support from the student’s research advisor

You should apply by email to Ethan V Munson and include the information detailed in the Student Award Application. Applications must be submitted by April 12. Late applications will not be considered. Students who have a full technical paper accepted will be given a higher priority compared to students with short paper or a poster. Award decisions will be made and applicants will be notified before the Early Bird Registration deadline.
