Student Travel Support
With expected support from National Science Foundation (NSF), IGSC will provide 8-10 student travel grants (each at $1,000 or actual travel/registration costs, whichever is less) for attending and participating in IGSC.
Graduate students (both MS and PhD) who are studying in a U.S.A. institution of higher education are eligible to apply for IGSC student travel grants. The applicants are NOT required to have a paper accepted in IGSC. However, such applicants must demonstrate that participating in IGSC will enhance and advance their graduate studies.
Each Application must include:
An essay (maximum of two pages) explaining why participation in IGSC will enhance and advance the applicant's graduate studies. Please include a list of recent publications, if any, including paper(s) accepted in IGSC 2019,
A recently published paper by the applicant that is relevant to theme of IGSC (conference publication or journal), if any; and
A letter from the advisor, sanctioning participation in IGSC and acknowledging willingness to support the costs of the applicants’ travel, as necessary, beyond the IGSC student travel support.
A copy of your most recent CV
Application Deadline: September 16, 2019.
All the aforementioned requirements should be merged into a single PDF file and submitted to Dr. Mahdi Nikdast (Mahdi.Nikdast@colostate.edu) via email. For additional information and in case of questions, please contact Dr. Nikdast.
