Student Travel Grant Information

IMC 2010 gratefully acknowledges NSF for sponsoring the Student Travel Grants (STG) program for US-based graduate students and corporate sponsor support for non-US-based graduate students. The purpose of this program is to encourage graduate student participation at the conference by funding the travel cost for students who would otherwise be unable to attend. Note that preference is given to students from institutions not traditionally represented at IMC.

How to apply

Please submit all the required application materials (listed below) electronically to the following website: http://leo.ece.ucdavis.edu/tgrp/.
  • A resume with complete contact information and correct email address.
  • A short personal statement (1 or 2 paragraphs, no more than 1 page) that include information that the applicant feel is relevant to support his/her case, e.g., why the conference attendance is important to the applicant's research and career development.
    It *must* include the estimated expenses for attending the conference (total, and breakdown by conference registration, travel, lodging, and meals). If you will be unable to attend IMC without a travel grant, please explain why this is the case.
  • A letter from your advisor (or a faculty contact if you do not yet have an advisor), which should (i) confirm the applicant's good standing in the institution; (ii) explain why the applicant would benefit from attending IMC as well as how he/she could contribute to the conference; and (iii) explain the current funding status and why the applicant is in need of the travel grant.
    This letter can be sent separately if your advisor/contact prefers.
Resume, statement, and letter should be in ASCII, PDF or Postscript only.

When to apply

August 9, 2010, 11:55 p.m. PDT, is the HARD deadline. Late applications will NOT be considered.
Decision notification will be sent out by August 23, 2010.

Additional instructions/information

Please pay attention to the following details about the STG application and reimbursement process:
  • You must be a student at the time of attending IMC 2008 to qualify for a travel grant.
  • Please provide complete contact information. We will need to have your current mailing address. (Please take into account any address changes you may have near the time of the stipend deadline, for example due to school breaks.) You will be notified via email, so make sure your email address is correct on your application.
  • Use of Conference Hotel: It is not necessary for a recipient of an IMC student travel grant to stay in the conference hotel, but reimbursement for lodging can only be made to those who stay in the conference hotel.
  • Use of US-carriers: For US-based students, note that NSF reimburses flights booked only on US-carriers.
  • The expectation is that a student travel grant will significantly offset air fare, shared hotel accommodation, and registration. It may not fully cover these expenses, however, since our desire is to maximize participation by students. In order to obtain reimbursement, you must provide IMC with your original receipts for air fare and hotel expenses.
  • Stipends are issued by check drawn on a U.S. bank. We will not be able to cash your check at the conference. Please be sure you will be able to make arrangements to cash the check on your own. We suggest you contact your bank for assistance.
  • NOTE to travel grant recipients: The reimbursement process can take on the order of several months so please be patient! We may also need your Social Security number (on the reimbursement form), so that your check will reach you in a timely manner.
  • The decision on student travel grants is made by the IMC Steering Committee; all decisions are final.
