Student Travel Grants are now available for CPSWeek 2008. Each grant includes partial reimbursement for registration and travel costs.


Important Dates

  • Application Deadline: April 30
  • Notification of Acceptance: TBA (approx. 1 month later)กก



Student selection for the travel grants will be in accordance with the following guidelines:

  • The applicant must be a current graduate student at a U.S. institution of higher education.
  • The applicant must have a fully paid registration for RTAS, IPSN or HSCC as a student and must physically attend CPSWeek.
  • Travel grants will be awarded according to a financial need basis. Students who are well-funded and have ample means of covering their travel should not apply.
  • Students who have already received another travel grant from an CPSWeek-related conference or workshop should not apply.


How to Apply


Interested student applicants should pay for the registration and attend CPSWeek first. If they are selected to receive the travel award, the travel award should cover partial expense of the students for registration and travel costs.


The student applicant must send an e-mail to lu (at) cse (dot) wustl (dot) edu. The subject of the e-mail must be CPSWeek 2008 TRAVEL GRANT APPLICATION (in uppercase letters). This e-mail must include the student's faculty advisor in the cc list. The e-mail must include the following information:
