Student Travel Grants
ACM/IEEE NanoCom 2018 is pleased to announce the availability of several student travel grants sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (NSF).
To qualify for this travel grant, the applicant must be a graduate student in an accredited US institution. The applicant does not need to have a paper accepted in the conference. Priority will be given to first-time participants in the conference. Awardees will be reimbursed after the conference (based on the collected receipts). Awardees must book their flights from US-based airlines. All recipients of the student travel grants are required to register by July 30, 2018 at a Student FULL Registration rate. The final award is contingent upon the recipient showing a proof of registration.
An application for a student travel grant consists of the following documents:
- A request letter from the student, with the following information:
- A brief summary of the student's research interests and accomplishments to date.
- A statement about why the conference attendance is important to the student.
- The student's Curriculum Vitae.
Items (1) and (2) should be merged in one PDF file and submitted by the student using EDAS.
- A recommendation letter from the student's graduate advisor, which should include:
- Confirmation that student is a bona fide full-time Ph.D. or M.S. candidate in good academic standing at the given institution.
- Ways this particular student would benefit from attendance at the conference.
- The strengths and potential contributions of the student.
- The advisor's commitment to covering the student’s travel cost in excess of the travel grant.
For Item (3), the student should provide the contact information for the advisor only. The letter will be directly requested to the advisor by EDAS.

- Should I merge my advisor's recommendation letter with my application together to submit to EDAS?
No. You will need to provide the email address of your advisor when you submit the application. Your advisor will then receive a separate email from EDAS to instruct him/her to submit the recommendation letter to EDAS.
