With generous support from the SigArch and TCCA, ISCA-50 will offer travel grants for students to defray a portion of their travel cost. The size and number of these grants will vary depending on funding availability, the number of student applicants, and their respective priority. Grant awards will be made before the early registration deadline; expenses will be reimbursed after the conference; grant recipients will be asked to submit original receipts to verify their expenditures as well as a 1-page summary of their involvement during the conference. Students receiving a travel award will be expected to participate in either the Meet a Senior Architect (MASA) or Meet a Senior Student (MASS) programs.
While we encourage all in need of a travel grant to apply, the selection process will give higher priority to students who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. Grants made available by SigArch will require a SigArch Student membership and will use selection criteria that considers broader impact. We strongly encourage applications from students that belong to under-represented groups.
Applicants must fill out the Travel Grant Application Form before the deadline, May 5, 2023.
Student applicants also need to ask their direct thesis advisor or other university sponsor to send an e-mail to the Student Travel Award Chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line "ISCA 2023 Student Travel Status Confirmation for [Your Last Name, Your First Name]", stating that you are a full-time student pursuing an MS/Ph.D. or an undergraduate researcher in the areas covered by ISCA. The advisor is also welcome to comment on the potential broader impact of making an award to you, e.g., if you belong to an underrepresented group, or if the candidate is unable to attend without a substantial travel grant.
Any questions can be sent to email@example.com.
