The SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program (STAP) was established to provide financial support for SIGAPP student members to attend SIGAPP primary conference (SAC) to present their accepted work. Student primary authors and co-authors are eligible to apply for these awards. The eligibility rules may vary year to year depending on funds availability. The deadline for applications is normally the deadline for registering as "paper author". Applications are evaluated on a competitive basis. Expenses eligible for coverage include conference registration fees, travel expenses to and from the conference, and shared accommodation expenses while attending SAC. Note that meal expenses will not be covered by these grants, neither will cost related to getting a visa to travel to the conference location. The award amounts vary year to year depending on type of travel (intercontinental or intra-continental) and the applicants pool and their needs. SIGAPP expects institutions to share costs in funding students travel to SAC.
Students may join SIGAPP for a very nominal fee ($8) and become eligible for this funding. Only SIGAPP student members are eligible for this award. Please see this URL for more details:
STAP details for SAC 2014 will be posted soon.
