ISCA 2003 Companion Travel Grants

SIGARCH is providing funds for a limited number of travel grants to attend ISCA 2003 for a companion care-provider for a SIGARCH member who is:
(1) a person with a physical disability necessitating a companion, or
(2) a parent of an infant less than one year old who cannot travel without the infant and a care-provider for the infant.

The only costs covered are those incurred solely for the transportation of the companion. Shared transportation expenses, such as taxis, and non-transportation costs, such as room and board, are not covered. The application deadline is 9 May 2003 and recipients will be notified approximately one week later.

The size of grants may be limited due to budgetary constraints. In particular, there may be upper bounds on specific items, and we may set different upper bounds based upon the level of involvement (symposium speaker, vs. workshop speaker, vs. coauthor for example).

Grants will be paid on submission of original travel receipts and a brief trip report. Grant application forms are available here. To apply for a grant, email or snail mail a completed application form to:
