Travel Grant

Student Travel Grant Application
The Organizing Committee is working hard to provide as much travel support to as many workshop attendees as possible. Please consider the following important information before applying:

  • The exact number of awards and their amount depends on the availability of funds; this will be determined as funding amounts are finalized.
  • Funding may only be used for travel-related expenses (e.g., airfare, hotel, and meals).

Where and How to Apply
A travel grant application must include the following:

  • The applicant’s resume.
  • A short letter describing the applicant’s research accomplishments, and how attendance at the N2Women Workshop will be beneficial.
  • A supporting letter from the applicant’s advisor, stating that the student is in good academic standing (in the PhD program), how she may benefit from attending the N2Women Workshops, and whether the advisor is able to offer any cost sharing to help cover the travel expense. (We encourage cost sharing as it allows us to award more travel scholarships to deserving applications.)

Applicants must email the resume and application letter as a single PDF attachment. The advisor should email the supporting letter.  The application and supporting letter should be emailed to n2women-workshop@acm.org with the subject line  “N2Women Workshop STG <application or letter> for <student name>”.
