Travel Grant

The organizing committee of the MobiHoc 2014 is pleased to announce the availability of funds to support student travel and registration to attend this year's conference and workshops. We would like encourage student participation by subsidizing the travel costs of individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference.

Grants are supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Application Process

Requests for funding will be accepted up until the last day of the conference as funding allows, but will begin making awards on June 15, 2014. To increase your chance, requests for funding should be sent to before June 14, 2014.

Students receiving funding will receive up to $750 to offset the hotel and flight expenses and registration fee. Grants are available to graduate students from US schools only.

Eligibility Requirements

All graduate student from US schools may apply. Any recipient of a travel grant must register for the conference and workshops, and may be asked to help with some conference/workshop events and/or with the registration desk as a volunteer. Awards will be made based on several factors and the priority will be given to
  1. historically under-represented and minority institutions,
  2. minority and under-represented students,
  3. student authors presenting a paper, poster, or demo at the conference or a workshop,
  4. economic need.

Application Materials

A travel grant application must include the following:
  1. The applicant's CV.
  2. A short letter describing the applicant's research accomplishments, and how attendance at ACM MobiHoc 2014 will be beneficial. The letter must answer the following question:
    Do you have an accepted paper, poster, or demo in MobiHoc 2014 or one of its workshops?
  3. A supporting letter from the applicant's advisor, stating that the student is in good academic standing, and how he/she may benefit from attending the conference.
Application materials should be sent as PDF files by email to: with the subject: MobiHoc 2014 Travel Grant Application.

Application deadline: June 14, 2014.
Applications received after this date may still be considered.

Awards will be announced on or after June 15, 2014.
