Student Travel Grants

With support from CoNext's industry supporters (Cisco, Thomson, Alcatel-Lucent, IBM, and IMDEA) and the US National Science Foundation, CoNext will be able to provide a limited number of grants to students to attend the CoNext conference and participate in the CoNext Student Workshop. Requests for travel support should be submitted via the CoNext Student Workshop page no later than Wednesday October 24.

The student should submit the following material via the student travel grant submission page:

  • your resume, as a PDF file
  • a cover letter providing (i) a short statement (e.g., two paragraphs) indicating how you would benefit from attending CoNext (ii) brief summary (e.g., a paragraph) of research interests and accomplishments, (iii) an indication of whether you have submitted a paper to the CoNext conference or an abstract to the CoNEXT student workshop, (iv) your approximate/estimated travel costs to the CoNext conference, (v) the name and email address of your advisor, who will be providing a letter (see below), and (vi) since CoNext travel awards may not cover the full amount required to attend the conference and student workshop, please explain if and why you would not be able to attend CoNext in that case.

Each student should arrange for his/her advisor (or a faculty contact if the student does not yet have an advisor) to submit a letter of recommendation, confirming that you are in good standing at your University, and commenting on the strengths and potential contributions of the student. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the advisor’s letter of recommendation is submitted; typically, applications missing the advisor's letter will be not be as strong as applications containing the advisor's letter. The applicant includes the email address of the recommender in the application, and the recommender will receive an email request to submit a recommendation.

Travel awards will be announced on or around October 29, 2007.
