IFIP Student Travel Grants (STG)

IFIP TC6 offers two Student Travel Grants to assist student and PhD student authors of accepted papers in attending WMNC 2015.

Eligibility

  • University/college sudents or PhD students that are currently enrolled and
  • which have authored an accepted paper in WMNC 2015

Expensed covored

  • There are two STGs available. Each STG covers expenses of at most 300€.
  • IFIP TC6 can only cover expenses related to accomodation and travel. Conference registration fees cannot be covered by IFIP! If the amount "covered" by bills is below 300€, then IFIP will reduce the payment accordingly.
  • Payment is done by IFIP after the conference has taken place. This presupposes that the student makes an IFIP payment request just after the conference which includes all bills. Details will be announced to the students after grant decisions.
