Student Travel Grants and Fellowship

The 1st IEEE International Conference on Trust, Privacy and Security in Intelligent Systems, and Applications (IEEE TPS-2019) encourages students to participate in the conference by partially subsidizing their travel costs up to a maximum of $1000 for those who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference or co-located workshops.

These student travel awards are supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Who Should Apply

Support is available for selected undergraduate or graduate students from US universities. The selection process will give preference to students without sufficient travel funding. Students from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

How to Apply

Students must fill out the student grant application and provide the following attachments needed in their application:

  • Current CV
  • Brief personal statement summarizing research interests, accomplishments to date, and an explanation of how they can benefit from attending IEEE TPS-2019. Also, an estimate of travel expenses should be included.
  • Letter of support from the student’s research adviser that explicitly addresses the following 3 points:
    • Confirm that the student is in good academic standing
    • State the availability (or lack thereof) of travel funds for the student from NSF and/or other Federal funding agencies; and
    • State whether they will be able to cover any additional cost of travel in excess of the travel award.
Important Dates
  • Submission Due: Dec. 7, 2019 (extended)
  • Notification: Dec. 9, 2019

Applications submitted outside of the submission period are not guaranteed to be considered.

Any questions about the travel grants should be sent to the Student Travel Grant Chair.
