Student Travel Grants

Middleware 2015, thanks to generous donations from our supporters, offers several grants to enable students to attend the conference. The grants will cover the Middleware conference registration, including meals, and possibly some funding toward accommodation and travel expenses.

Grants will be awarded by the grant committee based on a combination of need and merit. Students receiving a travel grant need to agree to serve as a session scribe (if required) during the conference. Applicants are encouraged to participate in the poster session and the workshops.

Who can apply?

Funding is available to all students at educational institutions world-wide. Students having a paper in the doctoral symposium will have the priority.

How to apply

Applications have to be submitted by e-mail. The following information is requested from applicants:

  • Completed form at the bottom of this page. Please write in English. The form can be copied as plain text in the body of your message.
  • A short position paper explaining what benefits are expected from attending the conference and why the grant should be awarded. The statement should describe ongoing research and recent papers published the applicant. It should be no longer than one page (PDF preferably), and should be attached to the application e-mail.
  • Students are also requested to provide a letter of recommendation from the advisor supporting the application. This recommendation letter should be sent directly by the supervisor to the grant committee.
