Student Travel Grant 



We will provide travel support to selected graduate students, including a limited number of students from international institutions, to attend this conference. The amount of support provided to each student will be up to a maximum of $800 if the student is local (less than two hours driving distance from the conference site) and up to $1200 otherwise. Each award will help cover the costs related to student’s travel (economy airfare up to $500) if non-local, lodging for up to three nights ($100 per night), meals, and conference registration fee. The travel support is made possible by grants from the US National Science Foundation and industrial sponsors.
