Student Travel Grants

SIGHPC is generously sponsoring travel grants for two undergraduate or graduate students to attend PASC18. One applicant traveling from within Europe and one applicant traveling from another continent will be selected. The student traveling from within Europe will be awarded a maximum grant of $600, and a maximum allowance of $1200 will be given to the selected student traveling from other continents. Moreover, PASC18 will cover the corresponding registration fee for the two selected students.

SIGHPC and PASC18 encourage students to submit a contribution to PASC18; however, this is not a requirement of the award.

Applications are due by February 14, 2018, with notification provided by March 1, 2018.
