Travel Grants

Funded by: NSF, SIGARCH, TCCA, Google, & FusionIO.


ISCA will offer travel grants for students to attend the conference, in addition to reduced student registration fees. Travel grants will also be made available to junior faculty members, under-represented minorities, and faculty members from non-Ph.D. granting colleges. The size and number of these grants will vary depending on funding availability and the number of applications that we receive. Expenses will be reimbursed after the conference; grant recipients will be asked to submit original receipts.

While we encourage all in need of a travel grant to apply, priority will be given to paper and poster presenters, co-authors, and under-represented minorities (including women and undergraduate students interested in research).

To apply for a travel grant from ISCA:

  • Applicants must send an email to the Travel Grants Chair, Aamer Jaleel, at ajaleel AT gmail.com.
    • For your subject line, please use "Travel Grant Application for <Your-Last-Name, Your-First-Name>”.
    • In the body of your email, please briefly describe your reasons for attending ISCA and your research interests.
    • Please also attach a current resume.
  • Student applicants also need to ask their advisor to send an e-mail to the Travel Grants Chair (ajaleel AT gmail.com) with the subject line "Student Travel Status Confirmation for <Your Last Name, Your First Name>", stating that you are a full time student pursuing an MS/Ph.D. or undergraduate research in the areas covered by ISCA.
  • DEADLINE: Travel grant applications must be received by May 1st, 2011.
    • For students, the confirmation email from advisors needs to be received by the same deadline.
    • Due to the large number of applications we expect to receive, we will NOT solicit letters from your advisors. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure that your advisor sends the email before the deadline.

We will acknowledge your application within a week of receipt. We will also do our best to notify you about the status of your application by May 10th, 2011, which is before the conference early registration deadline. Note that award decisions will be made based on funding availability. Note also that some awards may be made only after the conference.
