NSF Student Support



The meeting organizers are thankful to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for their award to fund a student registration support competition.  If the student application is selected the funding will cover a portion of the registration fee for selected students (foreign and domestic) studying at a US institution of higher learning. 


Please note the following:

  1. Awards will directly cover a portion of the student registration fee.  Award winners will pay a fraction of the registration fee to attend the full meeting.

  2. Before applying, please note that to qualify for the award students MUST (no exceptions, so please don’t ask) be a student at a US institution of higher learning, MUST attend the entire conference (Monday‐Wednesday) and MUST be an author or co-author on an oral or poster presentation. If the abstract submission deadline has past, student award applicants may submit an abstract (poster presentation only) along with their application for a travel award to meet this requirement.  If selected for a travel award, the abstract will also be accepted.

  3. “Student” means an undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled in a US institution of higher learning.  Postdoctoral scholars are not eligible.

  4. Awardees are responsible for the cost of their own accommodation and transportation.

  5. The number of awards is limited, and organizers reserve the right to limit the number of award recipients per university or per faculty advisor to fairly distribute the funds among institutions across the nation.

  6. To be eligible for an award, students must complete the form at the link below.

  7. The application deadline is Coming Soon.  You should be informed of acceptance by Coming Soon.  

  8. Priority for selection will be given to applicants who are lead authors and/or who actually present the oral or poster presentation.  The presentation of NSF-sponsored research is also positive.
