IEEE TCHPC Student Travel Awards for IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2018 Conference
About 15 student travel awards will be provided to CCGrid 2018 attendees, sponsored by TCHPC and NSF. The award will fund the costs of student's hotel accommodations and flight ticket (from U.S Carrier only). Expenses that are not eligible for reimbursement include registration, taxi, and meals. The amount of the grants will be based in part on student travel requirements and on availability of funds, with total up to $1000 USD for each student. Notice of grants awarded will be made prior to the conference. The grants will be distributed post-conference in the form of reimbursements against actual travel and accommodations expenses submitted by the student (Students will be reimbursed for expenses directly incurred by them and receipts are required for reimbursement).
All students who are funded out of the travel grant will be required to present a poster about their Ph.D. research.

Priority will be given to graduate students presenting their own published work and students (based on merit) who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference.

Applicant Eligibility
- The student must be enrolled in a graduate program at an accredited U.S. institution in good standing. Recipients need not be a US citizen or a permanent resident.
